Rio+20, Let’s make peace with the planet?

.
As Instagram Team mentioned in its blog last week, Rio de Janeiro hosted one of the most important event about the health of the Planet, “The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development”, called Rio +20 from 13 to 22 June 2012, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Conference discussed mainly two main topics: Green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication and the institutional framework for sustainable development.

It is known as “Rio +20” because it marks the twentieth anniversary of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Rio-92), and should help define the sustainable development agenda for the coming decades. The objective of the conference is to renew political commitment to sustainable development, through the assessment of progress and gaps in the implementation of decisions made at the major summits held on the subject, and through the discussion of new and emerging issues.

Our team of @IgersRio was fully engaged in covering the best from this moment. With more then 50 exhibitions around the city, igers citizens from Rio were shooting more then ever! You can see it all in the tags:

In the mean time, Instaforfun, with the great support of Planeta Sustentavel, Veja Rio Magazine and National Geographic Brasil, promoted a Contest on Instagram, with the purpose of showing thru images the future we want for our planet, during the worldwide conference Rio +20, happening in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, this month.

There were over 7.500 photos marked with the tag #insta4riomais20. From those, 48 were selected to be exhibited on a Photo Expo held at the event Planeta no Parque, organized by Planeta Sustentavel, in Arpoador, Rio de JaneiroBrasil, on June 16th and 17th.

In addition to that, Instaforfun organized an Instawalk on the famous Ipanema boardwalk. Approximately 120 Instagrammers joined the meet, coming from all over the country (Fortaleza, Brasília, São Paulo, Florianópolis…) and marked their photos taken during the event with the tag #insta4walkriomais20.
