The schedule of regular "official meeting" sessions at the UN:
Some of these official meetings will be by "ticket only" and a limited # of tickets will be available each day; and in some cases they will have overflow rooms with live webcast to accommodate the high #s of participants expected. All official meetings however, will be Live streamed on UN WEB TV (webtv.un.org) for those watching from home.
SIDE EVENTS & PARALLEL EVENTS:
The program of 'side' events, or activities organized outside the formal program of the session of the Commission, provides an excellent opportunity for Member States, UN entities and NGOs to discuss themes of the Commission and other critical gender equality issues. Side events that are held on the UN premises are those sponsored by Permanent Missions & UN entities - some of these will be available on UN WEB TV. Additional events, called 'parallel' events will be held off site at the Church Center and other locations nearby; these parallel events will not be live streamed.
Please check back on the CSW 63 webpage as it gets closer to the Opening session, as there will be a link for an "App" that you can download on your portable devices that will give you all the CSW schedules, to include regular sessions, side events and parallel events. The App will also be available through your App store to download.
