G7 Summit Cornwall 11th-13th June 2021

Why does the G7 Summit matter?

The G7 is an important meeting because the heads of government attending the summit are the leaders of some of the world’s richest and most powerful countries.

Decisions taken at these meetings impact people across the world.

The 2021 summit is especially important because G7 leaders will be discussing how the world can rebuild and recover from the pandemic.

The meeting will also be one of two gatherings of world leaders the UK will host this year, alongside the COP26 climate talks in November.

The summit will be the first to take place since Joe Biden was elected US President.

Register for the G7 interfaith event – Building a better world after the pandemic. Streamed live from Truro Cathedral at 7.00pm on Thursday 10th June. The event will reflect on the impact of the pandemic, how we rebuild and send a digital message to the presidents and prime ministers ahead of the start of their meeting the next day.

This year, at the G7 in Cornwall and COP26 in Glasgow, world leaders have a once in a lifetime opportunity to crack the four major crises the whole world is facing; the Covid pandemic, injustice, climate change and nature loss.
