Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Earth Summit)
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio 20 Logo


Special Event:
World leaders from around the world will head to Rio de Janeiro this June to attend a major United Nations environmental conference.

Rio+20 will take place 20 years after the UN Earth Summit, which ended with a great spirit of optimism with representatives from 172 countries, including 108 heads of state or government, signing on to the United Nations Framework on Climate Change. However, since then, with several countries failing to ratify the Kyoto Protocols on global warming and no real progress in reducing the emissions of the greenhouse gases believed to cause global warming, public interest has waned.

Unlike the 1992 Earth Summit that was devoted to climate change, the Rio+20 conference will seek figure out how to implement policies that allow the world to grow and develop in a manner that is sustainable, not just environmentally but economically and socially as well.
