G(irls) 20 Summit: What's Your Number?

In 5 days, the summit begins. Not that summit…the other one. The G(irls) 20 Summit, to be held in Toronto, will bring together one girl from each of the G20 countries for 10 days and will serve as a start of a global conversation about the “economic prowess” of girls and women.

Girls and Women: 3.3 Billion Ways to Change the World

The viral global campaign is soliciting ideas on how to make the world a better place. Do you have an idea about ways to provide universal education, to improve child and maternal health or to eradicate poverty? If so, join the campaign. Be a voice for change. Join the discussion.

The G(irls) 20 committee is made up of Linda Frum, Belinda Stronach, and Richard Florida, among others. Many celebrities, authors, and activists have already become part of the campaign. And now you can join the likes of Deepha Mehta, George Stroumboulopoulos, K’Naan and Dina Pugliese to be an Agent of Change.

To show your support, spread your ideas, and connect with others, join the discussion!  What’s your number?

I'm #9259. What's your number?
