The Government of Japan, as hosts of the 2020 Summit, have stated that they see the Summit providing opportunities for civil society organisations. They are also open to promoting the active involvement of young people throughout. The Government of Japan is also already in dialogue with civil society on preparations for the Summit. The UK, which is working closely with the Government of Japan on Summit preparations, has encouraged and facilitated this dialogue and will continue to do so.
