T20 Kick-Off Conference "Cohesion in Diversity: Accompanying the German G20 Presidency"
The T20 is a network of Think Tanks from G20 countries and serves as an "ideas bank" for the G20. For this purpose, T20 organizes the collaboration of global think tanks and high-level experts in order to provide analytical depth to ongoing G20 discussions and produce ideas to help the G20 on delivering concrete and sustainable policy measures. Under the Leitmotif of “Cohesion in Diversity” the conference will bring together Think Tank scholars from a diverse range of countries and disciplines who are striving to equip G20 leaders with innovative and implementable policy options. At the same time, the Leitmotif “Cohesion in Diversity” is meant to highlight the societal challenges faced by G20 members, as well as the challenge for this diverse group of countries to work jointly for the global common good. In these times of uncertainty and growing nationalism, the role of the T20 in fostering dialogue and cooperative approaches to global challenges has grown ever more important.
