Discussion with international NGO partners
Logos Germanwatch Mercator

The G20 summit in Hamburg is coming up soon. What we expect from the German G20 presidency is clear: the G20 must move forward combating climate change despite the destructive US-position. Ambitious G20 plans for the global energy transition and the implementation of the Paris Agreement are crucial. Due to their economic significance the G20 states must lead by example.

Representatives of the international civil society will present the situation in developing and emerging countries and their asks to the G20. In addition, we will report back from the international civil society (Civil20) summit on June 18/19th in Hamburg.
With contributions from Renato Redentor Constantino (Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities, Philippines), Hongyu Guo (Greenovation Hub, China), Happy Khambule (Greenpeace Africa, South Africa), Enrique Maurtua Konstantinidis (Fundación Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, Argentina), Christiane Averbeck (Klima-Allianz Germany) und Christoph Bals (Germanwatch).
