C20 Launches ‘Conversations’ Website
20 February 2014 at 11:34 am

An online platform has been launched for Australians who want to help shape civil society’s recommendations to the G20 Summit.

Called C20 Conversations, the website has been developed around ideas for a more inclusive global economy in four key themes: inclusive growth and employment, infrastructure, climate and sustainability, and governance.

“It is vital that civil society has a say in these discussions, which shape billions of individual lives as well as governments’ agendas,” the website said.

The former Labor Federal Government installed Not for Profit leader Tim Costello AO as the chair of the Australian Civil Society 20 (C20) Steering Group to ensure G20 deliberations in Australia are fully informed by the expertise and knowledge of civil society.

The Australian C20 is expected to help the G20 by gathering the views of civil society from across the globe and convening a C20 summit to develop recommendations for G20 leaders' consideration.

Costello is the current CEO of World Vision, a spokesperson for the Interchurch Gambling Taskforce, a member of the National Advisory Body on Gambling and a member of the Alcohol Education and Rehabilitation Foundation.

The Group also includes 13 Australians who are leaders in the community sector:

  • Mr Joseph Assaf AM – Ethnic Business Awards

  • Ms Jody Broun – National Congress of Australia's First Peoples

  • Reverend Tara Curlewis – National Council of Churches in Australia

  • Dr Cassandra Goldie – Australian Council of Social Service

  • Ms Julie McKay – UN Women Australia

  • Professor Rob Moodie – Melbourne School of Population and Global Health

  • Mr Dermot O'Gorman – World Wide Fund for Nature Australia

  • Mr Marc Purcell – Australian Council for International Development

  • Mr Bill Scales AO – Swinburne University of Technology

  • Ms Sally Sinclair – National Employment Services Association

  • Judge Rauf Soulio – Australian Multicultural Council

  • Dr Helen Szoke – Oxfam Australia

  • Mr Greg Thompson – Transparency International Australia

To join the social media conversation use the #C20 hashtag and follow @C20Aus for regular updates.
