An international view


By Takumo Yamada, G20 citizen blogger

takumo52.jpgI work as advocacy manager at Oxfam Japan, and I'll be in Toronto as part of Oxfam's international team for the G20 summit.

I will be mainly at the International Media Centre, talking to journalists about our analyses of what the leaders' discussions and agreements will mean for women and men living in poverty in poor countries.

But occasionally, I might be playing one of those "Big Heads," caricaturing the leaders for the global media's attention.
This is going to be my fifth G8, and my first G20. I'm hoping to share my thoughts on how these summits are being organized, particularly in comparison to the past summits I've attended.
