The G20 Leaders Summit will place Brisbane in the global spotlight in November. What does it mean for the local community? How do the people of Brisbane get their minds around the G20 and what it brings to their city?
Griffith University is teaming up with Quest Community Newspapers to give residents the opportunity to put their G20 question to Brisbane Mayor Graham Quirk. If you could ask Mayor Quirk any question on the G20 what would it be?
Mayor Quirk responded to the three most popular questions at a Brisbane event on August 20, which was streamed live.
“Has the Brisbane City Council taken steps to ensure Brisbane plays an active role in the G20? Perhaps it can highlight the absence of climate change on the agenda by announcing some ambitous future friendly clean energy vision? What are your thoughts generally on a city administration and a Lord Mayor's role in tackling climate change and what is your opinion on its importance to the world stage. Should it be on the G20 agenda?”
