Carmelite NGO at the United Nations

The Carmelite NGO

In recent years the Carmelite Order has established an NGO (non-governmental organisation) presence at the United Nations. The Carmelite NGO proclaims Christian values in the international forum, and informs the Carmelite Family about issues facing a globalised society.

Carmelite NGO Days of Prayer and Action
The Carmelite NGO organises two Days of Prayer and Action each year - on 5th June (World Environment Day) and 10th December (World Human Rights Day) - to inform Carmelites and to inspire them to prayer and action on issues of global significance.

Recent issues highlighted by the Carmelite NGO include: human trafficking, climate change, the situation in Zimbabwe, and access to water.
