Model G20 Summit

Peace has always been among humanity’s highest values- for some, supreme. It is the path we take for bringing growth and prosperity to society. To value peace and the importance of understanding that we should build, the world is celebrating the World Peace and Understanding Day. It is such time of the year where with celebrating this important day, India has been honored with the opportunity of being the Presidency of the 18th G20 Summit.

With such two magnificent events, The Human Values and Counselling Cell is organizing the Model G20 Summit for students to give them the opportunity to understand closely the working of the whole event. The Model G20 Summit is a simulation of the annual G20 Leaders’ Summit. At a time of uncertainty and turmoil in multilateral cooperation, Model G20 provides students with a unique opportunity to develop critical skills in negotiation, public speaking, team strategy, and diplomacy.

Mirroring its real world counterpart, negotiations at the Model G20 Summit are organized along three parallel tracks: the “Leaders’ track”, the “Sherpa track” and the “Finance track.” The goal of these meetings is to discuss which ideas and topics will be included in the consensus-based Communiqué document. The simulation of the summit involves:

  • The Leaders Track: This track belongs to the leaders and Senior Advisors of the Delegation Team where they would be presenting their opinions on the theme provided.
  • The Financial Track: Finance Track discusses global macroeconomic issues through its meetings of the Central Bank Governors.
  • The Sherpa Track: The Sherpa Track discusses the ideas that affect the culture and social aspects.

The themes for the tracks are as follows:

  • The Leaders Track: Vasudhaiya Kutumbakam: One Earth, One Family, One Future
  • The Finance Track: Financing Cities of Tomorrow: Inclusive, Resilient and Peaceful
  • The Sherpa Track: Building a resilient and conflict- free Society.

Students may register through a google form which would be soon shared.
