The G7 Global Taskforce is an informal coalition of some 70 civil society organisations working on the G7. The members come from a wide-cross sector of civil society as well as sectoral interests. All members are actively working on some aspect of the G7 whether it is deep policy or mobilising the public to put pressure on the G7 leaders.
The Taskforce meets regularly by conference call and once a year in a global strategy meeting, usually in the host country. The Taskforce is informal and has no full time funding and is facilitated by Kel Currah of What World Strategies. It currently has five working groups: Health, Gender, Food Security/Nutrition, Systemic Issues and Migration. Membership of the Taskforce and the Sub-Working Groups is free to these groups but limited to active NGOs working on theses issues.
