David Walker blogs the G20 Summit

Cartoonist and blogger David Walker will be blogging the G20 Summit for The Church Times on April 2nd during the meeting in London.

Walker is one of fifty bloggers nominated by readers and others who responded to the effort being organized by Oxfam. Here is a description of G20Voice:

G20Voice is part of an ongoing project that gives you the chance to participate, engage and influence leaders from governments, the business world, international institutions and other influential people at important global moments and events via the blogosphere.

We are inviting 50 influential and knowledgeable bloggers to attend the G20 Summit on April 2nd in London, UK, where they will get unprecedented access to world leaders and thinkers and the chance to ask questions about the issues important to them. 20 of those bloggers will be nominated by you.

Even if you are not one of the 50 at the actual summit there will be the chance to use this website to tell them about your concerns and ask them questions about their plans for ending poverty, tackling climate change or whatever concerns you most.

Walker says he is only blogger chosen from a religious organization:

It’s a huge privilege to be asked to do this and it came rather out of the blue – I didn’t nominate myself or anything. I understand that I will be the only “church blogger” there. I will of course be asking for your input as to the questions I should be putting to world leaders should I be given the opportunity.
