We shall be grateful to all current and future participants of the Civil G20 forum 2013. Any substantial comments are most welcome
Dear colleagues! This year Russia is taking presidency in G20.
Civil society has great opportunity to send in to G20 leaders its proposals and recommendations on the key themes, determined as Russia's presidency priorities. All the recommendations will be considered by civil society working groups. The position documents and the Address to G20 leaders will be drawn up on its basis. At the meetings of G20 the documents will be reported to sherpas of G20 by the civil society delegates. More details about the history of G20 can be found on www.g20civil.com.
The main goal of this platform is to collect recommendations and suggestions from the civil society to the G20 Leaders on 7 topics:
Environmental Sustainability and Energy;
Financial inclusion and financial education;
Jobs and Employment;

This is the recommendation's BODY. The SUBJECT could be then ‘Measures for creating jobs for vulnerable groups of population' (example). Your recommendation could be more detailed, i.e. contain a suggestion on specific business stimulation measure. However, you should remember, that a recommendation should address all or at least several G20 countries. It should not contain private information. Then you could attach a file, which will explain your recommendation. We ask everyone if possible to use English, in order to make your recommendation understandable for the network members from all countries. But you may use Russian language, if you have difficulties with translation. For example, you can attach an explaining paper in Russian for Russian speaking members of the working group. Please pay your attention that groups will be moderated, this is why all irrelevant discussions, spam, or messages violating ethical norms will be deleted.
We invite everyone to join the ‘Civil 20 Dialogues'! Civil 20 Secretariat
