We support a progressive community of international professionals seeking to bring universal values to life personally and at work, through meet-ups, social media and online discussion groups.  What does it take to keep your idealism alive?

To participate in some of the GVI “Connecting” forums, it will be necessary to verify that you work in the international community as one of the following:

  • a diplomat;
  • a staff member of the United Nations;
  • a member of a UN-connected non-governmental organization;
  • an academic engaged in activities connected to the international community; or
  • a member of the private sector having professional relations with the international community.


GVI produces publications on substantive issues from a values perspective, and linked to current events on the UN agenda. GVI also solicits and hosts articles by UN system actors, so you can hear your own voice in the conversation.
