G Science/G8 Statements

National science academies issue joint statements calling on world leaders at annual G8 Summits to address some of the world's greatest challenges through the use of science and technology. Historically, only science academies representing countries attending the summit would issue the statements. However, in 2012, leaders of the national science academies of Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Russia, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States signed the statements.
