The internet is already part of people's lives, in a context where the "real world" and the "virtual world" are increasingly interconnected. The way we relate and inform ourselves is directly influenced by online. This is a fact that the G20 Social engagement groups are not ignoring. Of the thirteen groups, six already have their own websites up and running, both as information channels and as a tool for facilitating dialog with civil society not only in Brasil, but around the world. It is a way of giving transparency to agendas and debates, as well as giving visibility to agendas on the www (world wide web).

On the websites, you can find, for example, information about the engagement groups, the priorities during the Brazilian presidency, a history of the G20, a calendar of events, a compilation of news and contact information. In addition to the websites, four groups also maintain social networks (Instagram and Twitter).

"The website and social networks function as a showcase, highlighting the importance and impact of the work carried out by these institutions. The social networks are an open channel for debate between the community of auditors of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) and society in general. This is an interaction that strengthens our dialog," said Bruno Dantas, Minister of the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU), who is coordinating SAI20 (Engagement Group of Supreme Audit Institutions) this year.

Alessandra Nilo, sherpa of the C20 (Engagement Group that brings together civil society actors and institutions) during the Brazilian presidency, also highlighted the importance of being on the networks. "Through the website, we invite organizations from every country in the world, not just those restricted to the group that makes up the G20, but all civil society organizations around the world are invited to participate and engage in our actions," she said.
