Chicago G8 Nato
This is a former site that was originally designed to help inform the community of the Chicago G8/NATO Summit. Both the Chicago NATO Summit and the Annual G8 Summit were originally supposed to coincide with one another in Chicago of last spring. Unfortunately, the Annual G8 Summit was moved to Camp David and took place two days prior to the Chicago NATO Summit. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is an Alliance consisting of 28 independent countries while the G-8 includes 8 of the world’s largest economies, excluding China and Brazil.
The Chicago NATO Summit was held on May 20th and May 21st, 2012. The NATO Summit offered the opportunity to witness world leaders working together in order to address global challenges. Heads of state and the heads of government of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization were all present for the Chicago NATO Summit. Chicago was the first American city to host a Summit other than Washington, D.C., and this event was hosted by President Barack Obama.
On May 18th-19th, 2012, The Annual G8 Summit was held at Camp David. Leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Russia discussed some of the major global issues that needed to be addressed including: economic, political, energy, climate and security challenges. President Barack Obama also held this event, which marked the 38th year for The Annual G8 Summit.
