EVENT 2019.01.30

Save the Date! C20 Summit will be held in 21-23 April 2019 in Tokyo, Japan

As the Japanese Government takes the responsibility of G20 Presidency in 2019,  JANIC serves as joint-secretariat of Japan Civil Society Platform for 2019 G20 Summit, which organizes C20, together with Japan SDGs Network on SDGs, .

 Civil 20 (C20) is one of the seven Engagement Groups of the G20. It is characterized as a specific space through which civil society organizations from different parts of the world can contribute in a structured and sustained manner to the G20, thus ensuring that world leaders listen not only to the voices representing the governmental and business sectors, but also to the proposals and demands of civil society as a whole.

 The objective of this Engagement Group is to generate spaces to discuss and build, through transparent and inclusive processes, high-level policy papers to be presented to the G20 in order to influence it.

 In recent years, the C20 adopted as a work modality the division into different specific Working Groups from which different topics are addressed in depth, and high-level policy papers are prepared and then presented to the G20.

 Bearing in mind that G20 and the C20 are global spaces, both local and international organizations that wish to discuss issues on the global agenda with an impact on the G20 can participate in the C20.

 The final result of all the C20 work is reflected in the communique of the C20.
