The Earth Debates
In partnership with the Natural History Museum and Stakeholder Forum, we are hosting four Earth Debates in the build up to the Rio +20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Earth Summit 2012) being held in Brazil, 20-22 June 2012.
What are the big international themes that world leaders will aim to address at Earth Summit 2012? The international agenda will focus on how to develop a greener, sustainable and more equitable economy and how to reform international institutions to better respond to the pressing issues.The debates concern the key issues of green infrastructure, reforming global finance and addressing the needs for people and environment for the future.The Earth Summit will bring experts from around the world together to discuss measures to reduce poverty while stimulating the economy; promoting clean energy; and encouraging sustainable and fair use of resources.
