G20 SOCIAL

G20 Social releases recommendation documents that engagement groups delivered to Sherpas

Greater social participation in G20 debates and negotiations has been a long-standing demand of the forum, and this year the Brazilian presidency took it a step further with the creation of the G20 Social. The delivery of engagement group documents to the Sherpas was unprecedented in the history of the G20.

In an unprecedented moment in the history of the G20, G20 Social engagement group representatives were able to sit down at the meeting table with the Sherpas of all the countries and international organizations participating in the forum of the world's largest economies—and to present, one by one, the groups' main suggestions to the G20. The themes were varied, but had one thing in common: a critical social approach to the G20, with special attention to human, environmental and social pluralities.

The documents produced by the groups and delivered to the Sherpas are now available, compiled on this website, the official G20 page. Parliament 20 was the only one not to deliver them, as it was still discussing its agenda, including the participation of women in politics. The next meeting along these lines will take place later this month, with Finance Track delegates.
