In 2008 a group of former international civil servants created the non-profit “Association of Former International Civil Servants for Development” (Greycells). The “development” part is what distinguishes Greycells from other existing associations, since all its activities are focused on or related to developmental issues emerging from the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
The main goal of Greycells is the dissemination of UN values by sharing the knowledge and experience of former staff members. Our activities are organised along two intertwined axes: first, the intergenerational seniors/millennials interface, and secondly the exchanges between the Geneva-Swiss population and the international expats community.
GREYCELLS HAS BEEN GRANTED ‘SPECIAL CONSULTATIVE STATUS’ WITH THE UNITED NATIONS ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL (ECOSOC)
