Economic and Social Council - ECOSOC

Attaining consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), non-governmental organizations may be admitted into a mutually beneficial working relationship with the United Nations. In concrete terms this entails their participation in ECOSOC and its various subsidiary bodies through attendance at these meetings, and also through oral interventions and written statements on agenda items of those bodies.

Organizations granted status are also invited to attend international conferences called by

the U.N., General Assembly special sessions, and other intergovernmental bodies.

The Australian Association of Yoga in Daily Life was granted consultative status on the roster of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) since 2004.
