Join the Global Conversation

The UN brought the world together in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to discuss and decide how to accelerate action for a healthier, more equitable and more prosperous world for all.

Government leaders, business CEOs, farmers, scientists, academics and community activists met in Rio, along with leaders of women’s groups, indigenous peoples organisations, trade unions and youth movements.


The UN Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio ("Rio+20") was a major step forward in achieving the future we want.
