"On November 2000 a Spiritual Caucus was created at the United Nations in New York for the purpose of adding a spiritual and ethical component to the United Nations' work. On October 2001 a group comprised of Alfredo Sfeir-Younis, Renate Bloem and Astrid Stuckelberg set up a Spiritual Caucus in Geneva. On 24 October 2002 member NGOs applied to CoNGO for it to be made a standing Committee of CoNGO. The Application was supported by the regulatory number of over 20 Organisations in consultative status with ECOSOC which submitted it to the CoNGO Board at its Meeting in Vienna on 30-31October 2002, where it was discussed and adopted. Since this Committee has been officially adopted, NGOs that want to join are welcome. Following several months of work and discussions with organisations based in New York, the CSVGC in New York (www.csvgc-ny.org) came into being on February 27, 2004. "[1]
