WORLD NGO DAY IS AN INTERNATIONAL CALENDAR DAY, ANNUALLY OBSERVED ON 27th FEBRUARY.
Each year, World NGO Day is celebrated from New Zealand and Australia, to the North and South Americas, bringing together supporters from the NGO sector, international and government leaders, multi and bilateral organisations, private sectors, communities, teachers, learners and experts in the field.
World NGO Day is an international day for all NGOs around the world to inspire people to become more actively involved within the NGO sector and encourage a greater symbiosis between NGOs and the public and private sectors.
The universal concept of World NGO Day is Celebrate, Commemorate and Collaborate – the various NGOs around the world, and the people behind them that contribute to society all year around.
World NGO Day is for everyone, celebrating Non-Governmental Organisations (e.g. CSO, NPO, Charities, Member Associations) and the important endowment to society of the various people behind each one of them.
If you’re already involved in supporting an NGO; running your own NGO, or you want to get started, here are some great ways to participate in World NGO Day.
