CERN Becomes A UN Observer

No, I don't mean an UNobserver. I mean a United Nations Observer.

CERN becomes the first physical science entity to be granted the status of an observer at the United Nations.

The lab joins environmental groups and public health agencies as the first physical sciences research organization in the ranks of UN observers. Observer status grants the right to speak at meetings, participate in procedural votes, and sign and sponsor resolutions, but not to vote on resolutions.
I will be curious to know if it can affect anything in the UN with such a status. Time will tell.
