Citizens shaping their own future
We cannot make genuine, effective progress without bringing all parties to the table, including public decision-makers, businesses and citizens. President Macron has already adopted this method with regard to the climate, with the One Planet Coalition which is organizing concrete climate action by bringing together all relevant stakeholders, such as associations and businesses.
He has decided to apply this format to the G7. Since it is citizens who will be most directly affected by the decisions taken at the G7, they will be closely involved in the process.
All constituencies will have their word: young people (Youth 7), women (Women 7), non-governmental organizations (C7), trade unions (Labour 7), employers (Business 7), think tanks (Think tanks 7)and academies of science (Science 7).
They will be involved throughout the work, at every level, including meetings with the sherpas, ministers and expert groups, through to the Biarritz Leaders’ Summit in August 2019. They will prepare recommendations for the G7 Presidency.
A dedicated working group within the National Council for Development and International Solidarity (CNDSI), the French the government’s key forum for dialogue and consultation on development and solidarity policies, has been set up to feed into the work of experts and ministers.
