AAYIDL And Consultative Status
The Australian Association of Yoga in Daily Life (AAYIDL) is a non-governmental organisation in roster consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and affiliated with the Department of Public Information (DPI).
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.
Department of Public Information - DPI
The DPI/NGO Section is part of the department’s Outreach Division and acts as its liaison between the United Nations and NGOs and other civil society organizations. It oversees partnerships with associated NGOs and provides a wide range of information services to them. These include weekly NGO briefings, communication workshops, an annual NGO conference and an annual orientation programme for newly associated NGOs. Affiliation with DPI requires having effective information programmes in place and the ability and means to disseminate information about the work of the United Nations.
The Australian Association of Yoga in Daily Life has been affiliated to the Department since 2010.
