PopCity just wrote a great article about the program: G20 Student Summit Helps Area Kids Get Global.
Stay tuned to this blog for information about the G-20: Summit details, classroom and personal resources, educational program information, etc. We’ll be updating as frequently as we can, now that our vacation season is finished!
“The Basics” is a short, informative film about the Summit, which will be held in Pittsburgh this September. It features interviews with local residents as well as basic “need to know” information about the G-20.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, “White House officials expect delegations from 25 nations to attend… The U.S. delegation will have about 250 people, the United Kingdom’s delegation will have about 150 and the remaining groups each will have roughly 50, he said. About 2,000 members of the media are expected.”
While city officials are beginning to sort out the logistics and security necessary for a meeting of this caliber, the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh is also planning. The Council will likely host at least one “Summit Preview” program for adults in the community, and one “large-scale” school program about the G-20 in mid-September. Stay tuned for details!!
