The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), commonly referred to as the Rio Conference or Earth Summit, was a major success in raising public awareness on the need to integrate environment and development over the past 2 decades.

Since it’s inception in Rio, Brazil in 1992, the UNCSD is back again for it’s 20th anniversary to focus on the GREEN ECONOMY, and particularly highlight Jobs, Energy, Cities, Food, Water, ¬†Oceans and Disasters.

At the Rio+20 Conference, world leaders, along with thousands of participants from governments, the private sector, NGOs and other groups, will come together to shape how we can reduce poverty, advance social equity and ensure environmental protection on an ever more crowded planet to get to the future we want!

Just yesterday, IDEAS was recognized and accepted as one of the 800 NGO’s around the World who are officially invited to attend the Rio+20 Conference! We will be sending a few representatives to speak on behalf of IDEAS and help expand our movement Globally!
