Visioning Another World: The G20 Peoples Summit is a three-day festival of symposiums, idea sharing, art, creative activities, education and action. It will take place in various locations in Brisbane from November 12-14,and before the G20 Leaders Summit.

This event brings together local and international thinkers to collaborate on broad themes: The Economy: Growth vs Sustainability, Environment, Climate & Earth Rights, Dispossession, Decolonisation, Politics, Democracies, Social Justice: Human, Labour, Gender Rights and De-militarisation & Peace.

The Peoples Summit will provide a safe, inclusive, family-friendly space to discuss the issues that really matter to ordinary people.

The Peoples Summit will be followed by two days of creative action, education and solidarity while the G20 Leaders Summit will take place. This will include the Peoples Rally and March on November 15.

While demonstrations will be taking place throughout the G20 Summit week, we are calling the community to rally together on the first day of the Leaders Summit to what will be a colourful celebration of diversity and unity in action to assert global social and ecological justice!
