G(irls)20 Summit 2011 + 2012
Modelled after the G-20 Summit, one girl delegate was selected from each of the G-20 countries plus a representative from the African Union.
The delegates debated, discussed, and designed innovative ideas that were necessary to politically and economically empower girls and women globally at the time.
While the agenda was the same as that of the G-20 leaders’ meeting and focuses on economic innovation, the participants were all girls age 18-20. In 2011, the Summit took place in Paris, France; and in 2012, in Mexico City.
