The 2012 G8 meetings will be Friday and Saturday at the Camp David Presidential Retreat and chaired by the United States this year. The European Union is represented within the G8 but cannot host or chair summits.
G8 countries include the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the United Kingdom. The G8 Young Summit was held last weekend with of course the illogical request that children be given a seat at the table to solve the world’s problems.
Mendeleyev’s take on the kids request to be included with the adults: When these children can pack their own suitcase to attend the G8, buy their own tickets and pay their own bills, then yes they can be included. Until then, sit down and listen for a change. Put that damn cell down too…you can’t text and listen at the same time.
