The G7 summit will be held in Hiroshima, Japan and is set to be one of the most important in recent years. This year’s summit will be particularly important in discussing ways to address the global polycrisis, economic crisis and impacts on global supply chains, as a result of climate impacts, the COVID19 pandemic and the resulting effects of Russia-Ukraine war.
Rather than implement climate action, we have consistently seen leaders back sliding in the commitments made in Paris and in Glasgow. The G7 summit is likely to set the pace for real climate action in upcoming global government gatherings including the france finance summit, the G20 and COP28. Here are authoritative Twitter accounts for real-time updates and insights on the upcoming G7 meeting.
