Outreach Rio+20 Summit - 22 June 2012
Outreach at Rio+20 – the final edition! As the Summit draws to a close today, Outreach takes stock on what has been achieved, where opportunities have been missed, and how we can move forward. Elizabeth Thompson, Bioregional and the World Bank discuss some of the positives we have emerged with, whereas Greenpeace and Eco Corner take a far more critical stance, but nonetheless remain optimistic that a more about a more sustainable future. The Huairou Commission remind us that many women at the grass roots level are moving beyond semantics and taking sustainable development into their own hands – a sentiment the Rio+21 partnership hopes to emulate. Political Editor Nick Meynen closes the issue by recalling a charged – and at times emotional – day of popular action at Riocentro.
