Local residents have the opportunity to assist in the G20 Leaders Summit in Brisbane through a volunteers programme, says.
The G20 Leaders Summit, to be held on 15 and 16 November this year, will be the most significant meeting of world leaders Australia has ever hosted with over 4,000 delegates and 3,000 members of the world’s media attending.
‘Australia has a proud tradition of hosting world class events such as the Sydney Olympics, the Brisbane and Melbourne Commonwealth Games and the World Expo in Brisbane in 1988 and volunteers have played a key role in the success of each of those events’, Federal Member for Forde, Bert van Manen MP said.
Up to 700 men and women, aged 18 and over, have the opportunity to be involved in the G20 through the volunteers programme. Among other things, volunteers may be called upon to assist in providing transport information and facilitation, hotel and accommodation information, media assistance, workforce and accreditation assistance. Volunteers will receive training for these duties.
Above all, they will be called upon to be good ambassadors for Brisbane, Queensland, and Australia!
‘Volunteering will provide a fantastic opportunity for Australians to play a critical role in the operation of the G20’, Mr van Manen said.
