The annual G-Science Academies’ meetings started in 2005 and have become a major platform through which the Society collaborates with other leading science academies. The academies discuss and produce statements on global challenges in order to inform and influence public policies and debate.
Participation at the meetings has varied over the years, and usually includes the academies of the G7 nations (USA, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan), and other nations.
Led by the Royal Society as chair, the national science academies of the G7 nations have produced three statements on net zero, biodiversity loss and data for international health emergencies (links below) ahead of the G7 leaders’ summit in the UK in June 2021.
These statements have also been endorsed by the following Science Academies, representing guest countries to this year’s meetings of the Group of Seven (G7) nations: Australian Academy of Science, Academy of Science of South Africa, Korean Academy of Science and Technology.
