DPI / NGO BRIEFING DHLA
November 2, 2006

Martina Russial

The event we attended was held in the Dag Hammarskjöld Library Auditorium, and lasted for no more than an hour or so. The small auditorium was fairly empty in the beginning of the morning but began to fill slowly as the meeting went on. At this meeting we heard Juan Carlos Brandt, Chief of the NGO section for the Department of Public Information, open the proceedings. He discussed how this meeting was being held in order to decide the theme for the 60th Annual DPI/NGO conference. Many representatives from different organizations took the floor to suggest themes and possible workshops for the next conference including: education, workshops on the state of indigenous groups, and themes all generally promoting international cooperation and understanding.
