In two months’ time, world leaders are meeting here in the UK for the G8 and tackling the causes of hunger is on the agenda. We know what needs to be done to stop people going hungry. We have an unprecedented opportunity to get the change we need: David Cameron is holding a Hunger Summit on the 8th June, a Tax and Transparency Summit on 15th June, and the G8 itself on 17th June. By coming together to speak out for change, we can influence the decisions world leaders make and stop millions of people going hungry. We want G8 Leaders to act on the four big issues that mean so many people do not get enough food; Aid, Tax, Land and Transparency. Tens of thousands of people have already joined the Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign, but we need to get millions behind us to make sure world leaders take the right action at the G8 to help end hunger. And this is where we need your help.
In the run up to the G8, Enough Food for Everyone IF is launching a powerful ten days of action…and we need hundreds of thousands of people to push world leaders to act!
On 8th June – the start of our big 10-day push to the G8, and the day of the Hunger Summit in London – we will be holding an amazing event in Hyde Park, central London, where tens of thousands of us will be able to come together to demand action on hunger and show our support for the Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign.
This will be your chance to add your voice to the powerful political message that we will deliver to the G8 leaders at their summit, and join others from around the world in a once-in-a-lifetime afternoon of activity.
There’s not long to go, and we really need your support to get lots of people to the event and to influence the G8 Leaders.
Times for the day:
11am: Start of activities, including faith services and other activities across London
1pm Arrival: gates open in London for the event
2–5pm: The main event takes place in Hyde Park
