UNESCO: Rio+20

The UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) will be held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012 and the hope is that this gathering will refocus on the original goals of the first Rio convention held in 1992. UNESCO hopes that Rio+20 will "underpin a broader, longer-term process of redressing imbalances, a rethinking of priorities, and the necessary institutional reforms to bring about coherence in economic, environmental and social policies, which benefits all members of society." On this site, visitors can learn about UNESCO's "messages" for those participating in Rio+20, which cover "Education for a Sustainable Future" and "Building Awareness for Green Policies." Moving along, the "Resources" area contains timely research documents like "From Green Economics to Green Societies" and "Blueprint for Ocean and Coastal Sustainability." Also, visitors shouldn't miss the "Video" area, which includes information about UNESCO's outreach efforts in addressing the digital divide and incorporating media partners into educating the public about sustainable development.
