The first issue of our English-language publication BKHS Perspectives collates six policy briefs with recommendations to transform the G7 from crisis manager to agenda setter in the fields of climate justice, gender mainstreaming, digital democracy, international cooperation, media performance and peace and security.
Holding the G7 presidency in 2022, Germany has a particular opportunity to set the direction for the G7 along its motto “progress towards an equitable world”. To achieve this goal, international exchange, the involvement of civil society and fresh ideas are key. We therefore invited eight young people from the G7 countries and Ukraine as a guest country to Helmut Schmidt’s home for the BKHS NextGen7 Summit. In a foresight exercise, we identified concrete policy goals for 2029 – the year when Germany will next hold the G7 presidency – and developed tangible policy recommendations for achieving these goals. Together with renowned think tank experts we refined the ideas even further.
