So we are about to pack up the office and head home, and to be honest I am feeling pretty blue after the final G8 announcements today. Despite your efforts, and despite the efforts of people here in Germany, this year’s G8 was a missed opportunity.

Blog channel:

Hi there. This is the first Oxfam group blog from your favourite G8 Big Heads. Unlike the real G8, we have managed to get our official position together pretty quickly. The concert yesterday rocked!

Blog channel:

The G8 yesterday announced their agreement on climate change. And while it has the appearance of success, we here at Oxfam still have issues about what they’ve agreed. I’ve only been working on climate change for a few months, but what I do know is that it’s already hitting people in developing countries first and worst. And without adequate money and the proper support systems to deal with the problem, these people will carry on suffering and it will only get worse – more droughts, more floods, more famine. More poverty.
