NGOs gear up for G7 media

The G7 global advocacy and campaigning community are gearing up for the G7 Summit. Over 100 NGOs have accredited to the International Media Centre (IMC) and will be accommodated by the Japanese government in the NGO centre situated alongside the IMC.

The IMC itself will be in the Sun Arena located on the outskirts of Ise-City which is 30kms away from the G7 Summit site. The NGO centre will built on the surrounding football field and will be a short walk away from the IMC.

NGOs are meeting by conference calls to coordinate their media strategies as well as plan any joint actions in the lead-up to the Summit to gain the media’s attention to their issues. Those groups interested in participating in coordinated media work prior to the G7 Summit, contact
