Rio+20 is over...so what next?

 

Background

Rio+20 was a high level sustainable development conference that was supposed to represent a political recommitment to solving the key issues that impact our planet. We have prepared this quick video to summarise what happened from the perspective of young people:

The post Rio+20 Process

Since Rio+20, there have been a series of Open Work Groups (OWG) held to decide on what happens with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and a High Level Political Forum will be launched in September after the final Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD20).

 

20th September, Commission on Sustainable Development 20, New York

This meeting will be a one day event to mark the death of the Commission on Sustainable Development Process.
