THIS month, representatives (代表) from eight of the world's most powerful countries met in Germany. They discussed world issues (事件) there. Were they leaders? No. They were teenagers.

This meeting is the Junior 8 (J8) Summit (峰会). It was created after the Group of Eight (G8) Summit. The G8 Summit is a yearly meeting of leaders from the US, the UK, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, Italy and Russia. During the G8, they discuss world issues and look for solutions (解决方法). Both the G8 and J8 took place in June.

Nearly 2,000 teenagers from around the world applied to (报名) take part in the J8 Summit. Sixty-four kids aged 13-17 were chosen.

Over a week, the young people had discussions and activities. They learned more about global issues.

Future leaders

One teenager from each country met with the leader of their country. Steffen Parth, 17, from German met with German Chancellor (总理) Angela Merkel.

Parth said to Merkel that the J8 believed economic crisis (经济危机) in Africa was the key world issue.

The J8 teenagers said they would do more. The US kids planned an exhibition about the summit. They said they would also write articles for their local paper.

The kids know that resolving (解决) global issues would take time. "You can't fix the world in a week," says Kritika Kailash, 16, from the US. "We need to stay committed (坚定的)."

Your turn: critical thinking

If you were a J8 member, which world problem would you care about the most?
