Deadline: December 30, 2012
Are you a passionate, forward thinking, solution oriented young woman from a G20 country or can represent the European or African Union? Will you be 18-20 years of age by June 13th to 21st, 2013? You are invited to apply to the G(irls) 20 Summit.
The G(irls)20 Summit brings together one delegate from each G20 country, plus a representative from the European Union and the African Union. The delegates debate, discuss and design innovative ideas necessary to empower girls and women globally and present these to G20 Leaders. While the agenda is the same as the G20 leaders and focuses on economic innovation – the participants are all girls, aged 18-20.
To highlight the prowess of girls and women and their role in development and innovation, prior to the G20 leaders meeting in Russia, twenty-one girls, one from each G20 country plus representatives from the European and African Unions, will come together for the third G(irls)20 Summit that will be held June 13th to 21st 2013. The G(irls)20 Summit themes will parallel the themes of the G20 leaders meeting.
Delegates will participate in panel discussions, attend workshops on subjects such as media relations, social media and business planning, and caucus to discuss and promote tangible, scalable solutions toward economic prosperity. The Summit culminates in a delegate-led press conference and communiqué that provides a blueprint to G20 leaders on how to utilize and engage one of the best resources in the world – girls and women.
With the support of a number of partners, G20 Summit team are committed to ensuring that the experience is accessible to all, and will be assisting with the costs of the Summit for delegates selected to attend, including flights and accommodations.
