The C20 presents its recommendations to President Mauricio Macri
The Civil 20 summit under the Argentinian presidency in the fora was held in Buenos Aires on 6-7 August 2018. Argentine President Mauricio Macri attended the opening session, where he received a document with recommended policies.
The 42-page document (in English) is the result of a process of several months of work that involved over 600 NGOs from more than 40 countries. Based on the discussions held and the progress made by the G20 and the C20 in previous years, it includes proposals on anti-corruption, climate, education, employment, the environment, energy, gender, implementation of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, inequality, investment, sustainable development, and technology and digitalization.
Civil society must play a key role to ensure that the benefits of economic growth reach all sectors of society, particularly those with fewer economic resources.
Although many civil society organizations have been directly involved with the G20 since the first heads of State and Government met in 2008, the C20 was formally established as a direct representation of civil society under the Russian presidency of the group in 2013.
During the Argentine G20 presidency, the C20 is chaired by the Poder Ciudadano Foundation and the Argentine Network for International Cooperation (RACI).
