The Mock G7 Pack 2021

The UK is hosting the G7 Summit in June 2021. Young Citizens wants to engage young people across the UK in this world event where topics of global importance, from trade to climate change, are debated. As a result, we are asking schools to sign up to run a mock G7 event in their classrooms during the week before or following the G7 Summit, which runs from 11th-13th June. 

About the G7

The G7 (Group of 7) is a gathering of world leaders from seven of the most advanced economic nations. It meets annually to discuss solutions to the most pressing shared issues. The theme for the 2021 G7 Summit is “Build Back Better”. The G7 will focus on four priority areas- climate and nature, prosperity and free and fair trade, health and strengthening health systems and championing shared democratic values. The G7 presidency rotates between the members with each country hosting in turn. This year the UK hosts the leaders summit which will take place in Carbis Bay, Cornwall.
 

How can your school get involved? 

Young Citizens is asking schools to sign up now to pledge to run a mock G7 event around the same time as the summit, 11th-13th June. Aimed at students aged 14-18 years this resource will provide teachers with the tools they need to run an immersive, active learning programme in the classroom. Over three lessons students will explore what the G7 is before being challenged to take part in a mock G7 event. Each student is allocated a role guide and assigned to a country. In these roles students will be tasked with researching and debating the pressing issue of climate change, taking into consideration the needs and priorities of the country they are representing.
