IF@G8 bloggers

The IF@G8 bloggers brought an authentic voice to the G8 Summit.

We invited them to take the views of tens of thousands of IF campaign supporters into the Summit and provide an insight into how world leaders make decisions that affect billions of people across the globe. Our bloggers have first hand experience of the effects that decisions made by governments have on people both in the UK and in the developing world.

Meet our four bloggers below.
