The “Coffee” Series is designed to give individual delegates the opportunity to meet with NGOs on an informal basis, where we may share some of the concerns that touch us most deeply. The purpose of this series is to get to know one another in a friendly atmosphere, so that we may work together in the future to build a stronger UN and a better world.

The ambassadors are invited to speak from their personal sense of mission, ideals and commitments. They discuss values issues in their own counties, or values related to issues currently before the UN, or relations with NGOs here or at home. Here are the ambassadors who have taken part in the “Coffee” series so far. We are deeply grateful to each and every one of them for their warmth, their insights, and their inspiration.
