C20 Summit Registration Deadline Looms
Tuesday, 27th May 2014 at 9:26 am

The registration deadline for the C20 Summit – the first of the lead-in G20 ‘satellite’ conferences to debate proposed policies to be put to the G20 – is ending on June 6.

The C20 Summit, to be held in Melbourne on June 20-21, is set to “refine and endorse the specific policy issues and solutions civil society wants the G20 to consider when it meets in Brisbane in November”.

“The C20 (or ‘Civil Society 20’) brings community voices to the G20 as the world’s leaders face massive challenges including fostering sustainable, inclusive growth,” the C20 Summit said.

“In a world where there is increasing inequality within and between countries, the C20’s primary aim is to ensure that people are put at the centre of G20 decision making.”

C20 organisers said delegates chairing discussions or speaking at the event include senior representatives of the leading NGOs including World Vision, ACOSS, WWF, Oxfam, Transparency International and the National Council of Churches, as well as international speakers across the four key policy issues of:  Inclusive Growth and Employment;  Infrastructure;  Climate & Sustainability; and  Governance.

The C20 Summit will be held on June 20-21 at the Melbourne University, Parkville.
