Rio+20 conference in Brazil through Instagram
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.
