C7 2022 International Kick-off on 11 February, 13.00 – 15.00 CET

On 1 January 2022, Germany has assumed the G7 Presidency. VENRO, the umbrella organisation of development and humanitarian NGOs in Germany, and the German NGO Forum on Environment and Development have been appointed by the German Government to coordinate the Civil 7 (C7) process. The aim is to establish a dialogue between civil society and the G7 governments and to inform the outcomes of the 2022 G7 Summit.

To introduce this process and provide a space for discussion, we invite you to attend the International C7 Kick-off on 11 February 2022 from 13.00 to 15.00 CET via Zoom.

The event will be held in English. Please register here and share this invitation with your international networks, local partners and interested colleagues.


We are delighted to announce that we will be joined for this event by the Sherpa of the German Government, Dr. Jörg Kukies, who will present the priorities for the German G7 Presidency and take part in a panel discussion. Here you can find further information on our agenda.


At the event, you will also have the chance to meet the C7 Steering Committee and find out more about this year’s C7 Working Groups:


  1. Climate and Environmental Justice
