On 18-19 June, more than 450 representatives of civil society, representing more than 200 organisations from over 60 countries, came together at the Civil20 Summit in Hamburg. They discussed “The World We Want”, the title of the conference, in workshops and plenary sessions. After passing the C20 Communique on Monday noon, the C20 Steering Committee handed it over to German Chancellor Angela Merkel in the afternoon. Afterwards, Merkel listened to the recommendations of civil society to the G20, calling for more financial regulation, strong commitments on the Paris climate agreement and better health systems worldwide.
