The Group of Island Nations (GIN) is a multinational organisation on Eurth. Its members discuss common socio-economical topics challenges as economic development, trade and shipping, ecology, fishing, etc. As island nations, the organisation's members share similar opportunities, concerns, and solutions which are markedly different from other, land-based Eurthican countries.[1]

Formation

The 1960s-1970s period on Eurth was a difficult time for many island nations. The Second Argic War (1968-1974) had many negative consequences, including rising energy prices and its effect on their shipping costs. The Group of Island Nations expected their combined influence could pressure the Oil Producing Eurthican Countries to again lower these energy prices. The first (informal) meeting took place in May 1974 in Mitō. It was the first international conference without continental powers, attended by King Tomasso from the Sunset Sea Islands and Michael Cancio from Salvia. They, along with a host of other heads of state and government, effectively amplified the plight of many islands' state of peril. They also vowed to no longer get involved in ‘Great War’ logic. The Kenkyō Declaration was an incredibly optimistic moment of fraternity, solidarity, and pacifism.[2] This resulted in the Group of Island Nations' formation and the appointment of its first secretary-general.[3]

Leadership

The Group of Island Nations is led by the Secretary-General. This person is appointed to a two-year term by a simple majority vote of the member countries. The Secretary-General is responsible for organising the conference. Current and previous Secretaries-General include:
