Global Issues

FAWCO is proud to be a non-governmental organization with special consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, a status supported by the work of our Global Issues Teams. FAWCO's Resolutions and Recommendations for 2021 - 2023 establish our commitment to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide, especially in the areas of education, the environment, health and human rights. Therefore, our Global Issues Teams focus on these four issues. Recently, the group read “The Hidden Life of Trees” by Peter Wohlleben. Incidentally, this book is available as an audiobook. There’s a free audiobook/ebook service available through the Danish public library system. Look up https://ereolen.dk/.
