He said the G-7 meeting, to be held in his country in June this year, will have two extra themes on gender and oceans', and plastic.

The theme on gender will focus on empowerment of women while ‘oceans and plastic’ will discuss the menace of plastic, he said.

The G7 comprises Canada, the UK, the US, France, Italy, Germany and Japan.

Trudeau said diversity creates new solutions and systems which are more multi-layered do much better than mono-cultures.

Diversity, pluralism brings together different experiences, different background and different stories.

That matters.

Nature, itself, understands that diversity is a key to resilience, success,” he said.

The Canadian prime minister often speaks about the diversity, multi-culturalism and pluralism in his country.
