G7 Summit Edition – August 25-27
Biarritz, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France

A G7 Fighting inequality

CLIMATE CHANGEThe New Economy is a long-standing publishing initiative that brings further clarity and purpose to the critical climate debate. It creates a platform for governments, corporate business leaders and their advisors to work together, in order to carry forward the progress that was made at the last G7 Summit in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada. The G7 2019 Summit, this August, will play a vital role in this process.

We all agree that we need to move beyond the success of the last G7 Summit in Canada and establish a stronger global commitment to deliver appropriate international climate action.

CLIMATE CHANGE – The New Economy will be working with all the main stakeholders from now until August 25–27, 2019, when the G7 next meets in Biarritz, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France, setting the tone for a successful outcome during the G7 process by bringing together all the key players to have their say on the key issues, challenges and structures that are needed for success today and beyond.

In addition, the attendees will include the leaders of the seven G7 member states as well as representatives of the European Union.

At the G7 Summit France intends to “tackle the roots of inequality and work towards making genuine progress towards the day when Article 1 of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen will become a reality”.

The Group of Seven (G7) is an informal grouping of seven of the world’s advanced economies that meets annually to build consensus on some of today’s most challenging global issues. On January 1, 2018, Canada assumed the G7 Presidency, which rotates every year among member nations.

As G7 chair, Canada will host the 2018 G7 Leaders’ Summit on June 8-9, in Charlevoix, Quebec. Situated between the Laurentian mountains and the St. Lawrence River, the Charlevoix region is open, expansive and welcoming – an ideal setting for positive and productive discussions on issues of importance to Canada, the G7, and the world.

On December 14, 2017, in an event with Deputy Ministers for the G7 Summit and Personal Representatives (Sherpa), Peter Boehm, Prime Minister Trudeau unveiled the 2018 G7 brand, and introduced the five themes that will guide discussions during Canada’s Presidency:

  • Investing in Growth that Works for Everyone;
  • Preparing for Jobs of the Future;
  • Advancing Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment;
  • Working Together on Climate Change, Oceans and Clean Energy; and
  • Building a More Peaceful and Secure World.
