C20 India 2023, gives Civil Society Organizations (CSO) from all over the globe a forum to express their constituents’ objectives to the G20’s world leaders. It provides CSOs with a platform to advance social and economic development with the aim of leaving no one behind, represent the main and prevalent problems affecting people throughout the world, and defend the authority of this sector.

The group’s unique structure allows it to involve more than 800 representatives of civil society organisations from all across the world while incorporating G20 ideals.

Organizations in civil society are now one of the best methods for bringing about social change. They work to bridge the communication gap between the public and the government and have strong ties to the general public.

The priority issues of C20 will focus on solving the socio-economic matters which touch the daily lives of the people, which include 

  • Education, 
  • Health,
  • Environment, 
  • Technology and 
  • Sewa(service)

The flame of optimism, individual determination, and selfless service is represented by the C20 India 2023 logo. The #YouAreTheLight is a call to action for every member of civil society to unite, forge their own path, discover answers, and address problems as a group.
