Finally, as part of the opening of the G7 to civil society, the French Minister of Education and Youth, offered to various schools to organise negotiation simulations in the G7 format on the topic of the combat against inequalities.
Throughout France, 60 negotiation simulations in G7 format were organised in middle schools and high schools. A jury designated 11 schools, each represented by a student during the Ministers’ meeting. They had the opportunity to talk with the Minister and Madam Brigitte MACRON.
To complement the ministerial meeting, these 11 students also had the chance to discuss between themselves on the themes which appeared to be priorities for them in order to tackle inequalities, such as gender equality. On this occasion, they all received a diploma to be shared with their classmates and a gift from the G7 Education Ministers.
These two meeting of the Ministers of Education and Ministers of Development and Foreign Affairs of the G7 were lead in the perspective of the G7 Summit, which will take place in Biarritz from 24-26 August 2019.
