2011 Global Green Growth Summit concludes successfully
The Global Green Growth Summit, hosted by the Korean government and OECD and organized by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) and Korea Development Institute (KDI), was held from June 20 to 21 at the Lotte Hotel in Seoul.

Organized around the theme of "Building Planet - Responsible Civilization," the event celebrates the OECDs 50th anniversary, the 15th anniversary of Korea joining the OECD and the one-year anniversary of the launch of the GGGI.

The first day of the summit was for sharing development strategies for green growth and to reinforce cooperation among countries with three sessions: "Building Planet-Responsible Civilization," "Green Growth & Sustainable Development Governance: Rio+20 & Beyond," and "GGGI and a New Framework of Cooperation."

The program continued with three sessions on "Prospects and Challenges of the Korean Economy," "G20 & Global Governance," and "Towards Better Development Cooperation: HLF-4, G20, MDGs." The sessions hope to enable the G20 to continue coordinating efforts to address long-term global issues.
