The S20 is a Forum of the national academies of the G20 nations. Each year one of these countries, in rotation, organizes a summit and in 2020 this was the turn of Saudi Arabia. The S20 is responsible for preparing statements on pressing global issues which are presented to the G20 political leaders. More information on the S20 and process can be found here.
