G20

Abby H.

In G20 on April 13 & 14, 2024, delegates discussed how to change climate change. Climate change affects a lot of different issues such as hunger, water usage/quality, etc. G20, also known as the Group of 20 committee, came up with many resolutions to help address this problem.

In the opening speeches, some delegates wanted to focus on the long-term food insecurities and water usage. Many wanted to focus on the environmental effects such as greenhouse gas production and global warming. During the speeches, many delegates proposed different ideas to help stop climate change such as finding more nature-based solutions like renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuels.

During lobbying, the committee split into 2 groups, one who wanted to focus on the environmental impact and the other who wanted to focus on the long-term food insecurities. The 2 sides were very focused on their tasks with a few minor distractions. They spent a total of 4 hours on their resolutions and were ready to start the debate! The debate started off slow but soon became very productive and many people argued their ideas. It was still pretty slow, even though it was productive.

On April 14 the debates started off strong! They talked about many different solutions such as switching to renewable energy. They were very focused and fixed many amendments. The delegates also had the idea of expanding the amendment to other countries that aren’t in G20. All in all,  this is what happened in the past days.
