On Wednesday, June 21st, Girls Gearing Up went to Munich to meet amazing women from all over the world at the G(irls)20 Summit. They talked about the same topics as the G20 leaders: Digital Economy, Energy and Climate Change and Migration. We heard Malala's father, Ziauddin Yousafzai speaking about the importance of education and the author Sandra Uwiringiyimana told us about her experience as a refugee and gave us some tips about how we can help people seeking refuge to feel welcome. Some of our #GGU2016 superstars came along to meet all these inspiring people. It was so much fun!
We were so proud of the GGU delegation for speaking up with questions and connecting with women they found inspiring.
We also found a minute to get a quick glimpse of Munich!
All in all, it was inspiring, exciting, and fun day for all of us! We can imagine some of our girls will be interested in applying to represent their countries at the G(irls)20 in the coming years!
