5) Closing Remarks
Civil 20 (C20) is one of the eight Engagement Groups of the G20. It is characterised as a specific space through which civil society organisations (CSOs) from different parts of the world can contribute in a structured and sustained manner to the G20, thus ensuring that world leaders listen not only to the voices representing the governmental and business sectors, but also to the proposals and demands of civil society as a whole. The objective of this Engagement Group is to generate spaces to discuss and build, policy papers to be presented to the G20 in order to influence its discussion, through transparent and inclusive processes.
Similarly to the G20, the C20 does not have a permanent structure, so it does not have a permanent secretariat, or central offices or officials. It also has a rotating presidency that changes annually. In recent years, the C20 adopted the division into specific Working Groups from which different topics are addressed in depth, and policy papers are prepared and then presented to the G20.
Bearing in mind that the G20 and the C20 are global spaces, both local and international organisations that wish to discuss issues on the global agenda with an impact on the G20 can participate in the C20.
The final result of all the C20 work is reflected in the final communiqué of the C20.
The C20 Summit in 2019 was held during 21-23 April in Tokyo, with more than 800 participants from 40 different countries.

The purpose of the session is to have a dialogue with the participation of civil society actors working on G20 advocacy and C20. The participants will be the members of C20 International Advisory Committee and Steering Committee, thematic working groups and wider civil society stakeholders interested in G20 and C20.
