Blog: G-8 y G-20: Os juzgaremos por lo que hagáis, no por lo que decís

Todos los que estamos exigiendo a los líderes mundiales que se tomen en serio el cambio climático nos sentimos alentados al saber que el gobierno canadiense cedió a la presión de los ambientalistas, premios Nobel de la Paz y los países más progresistas a principios de la semana pasada, incluyendo el cambio climático en las agendas del G8 y G20.

Blog: Hey World Leaders – Invest in the future now!

Today, activist groups worldwide organized events as part of a G20 day of action in countries such as the US, the UK, India, Mexico, Malawi, South Africa and Belgium. They did so with the goal of sending a powerful message to their leaders before they head to Canada for the G8/G20 Summits: Invest in the future. Now.

I’ve arrived here in Toronto, Canada to lead Oxfam’s campaigning work for the upcoming G8/G20 Summits on 25-27th June. We have lots planned so make sure you stay tuned!

The G8 meet first, in what is dubbed ‘the Muskoka Summit’ for about a day. Then the G20 will meet in downtown Toronto for another day and a half. The G8 has a broad agenda of issues they will cover such as maternal health, security, terrorism etc. The G20 will focus on finance and global economic recovery.
