8 June 2007

Welcome to the openDemocracy's poDcast.

This week we discuss the different ways world citizens have been engaging with the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm, Germany. Climate change and poverty in Africa are high on the agenda for the leaders from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States. But will they really respond to demands from global social justice activists? There's only one way to find out.

Solana Larsen talks to Ricken Patel from Avaaz.org in New York, German journalist Jan Hendrik Becker and openDemocracy columnist Patricia Daniels who has been reporting on the Alternative G8-Summit in Rostock and much more on our openSummit blog.
