Delving into the Agenda and Objectives of the G20 Summit

As the national capital prepares to host the 18th G20 Summit today, with the participation of numerous global leaders and dignitaries, it is imperative to delve into the summit’s agenda and objectives.

High-Profile Event with Global Participation

  • This high-profile event has attracted the presence of over 30 heads of state, alongside prominent officials from the European Union and guest countries who have been extended invitations.

  • India is hosting the G20 Leader’s Summit in the national capital at the newly inaugurated Bharat Mandapam on September 9-10.

Focus on Climate Action

The first session of the G20 Summit, scheduled for approximately 10:30, will center around the theme of ‘One Earth,’ which represents a central topic of discussion among G20 leaders. This session is dedicated to expediting climate action by enhancing mitigation efforts and reinforcing the global commitment to achieving net-zero emissions at the earliest possible juncture.

Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – One Earth · One Family · One Future

Notably, the theme of this year’s G20 Summit, which is taking place under India’s presidency is “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” or “One Earth · One Family · One Future” – is drawn from the ancient Sanskrit text of the Maha Upanishad. Essentially, the theme affirms the value of all life – human, animal, plant, and microorganisms – and their interconnectedness on the planet Earth and in the wider universe.

Schedule of Events

  • After the conclusion of the ‘One Earth’ session, and followed by lunch, another session of ‘One Family’ would be conducted at 3.00 p.m. as a part of the Summit.

By leveraging its presidency, India is fostering collaborative solutions that benefit its own population and contribute to the broader global well-being.
