G7 Summit Edition – June 8 – 9 – Le Manoir Richelieu in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada
Creating engagement between key, global stakeholders
CLIMATE CHANGE – The 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 Taormina, Sicily. The G7 2018 Summit, next June, 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 Italy 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 June 2018, 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 La Malbaie.
The introduction will be written by Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister, Canada. The foreword will be provided by Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, ensuring that this will be a truly historical publication and event.
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 Canada intends to “showcase both its domestic and international priorities: to strengthen the middle class, advance gender equity, fight climate change, and promote respect for diversity and inclusion.”

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 will assume 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 Minister for the G7 Summit and Personal Representative (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
