G8 Civil Society Coordinating Committee & our At the Table Campaign
Development and Peace is part of the Civil Society Coordinating Committee made up of a number of civil society and social movement organizations from across Canada who are mobilizing to communicate their message to global leaders.
This coalition has organized a campaign called At the Table, a Canadian-led but globally supported civil society campaign, mobilizing citizens to “take their place” alongside world leaders in important global summits.
It is a call to leaders to “take their place” in forging bold decisions on the issues people care about—poverty, climate change, and economic justice.
The goal of the At the Table campaign is to increase awareness and support for action on poverty, climate change and the global economy at the major global summits in 2010, including the G8 and G20 summits in Canada, the G20 in South Korea and the United Nations Millennium Development Goals Summit.
The main policy goals of the campaign are as follows:
1. Poverty and Inequality – Keep commitments to developing countries – Invest in and empower women and children
2. Climate Change – Reduce greenhouse gas pollution – Support poorer countries in responding
3. The Global Economy – Ensure global recovery for all – Make global rules and institutions fair
