The People's Summit at Rio+20
As global leaders gather in Rio for the UN Sustainable Development Conference, international community groups are also coming together.
Many of these groups feel the planned discussions among world leaders at Rio+20 are not up to the job of dealing with the planetary crisis caused by unsustainable economic models.
Seeking sustainable alternatives
The People's Summit for Social and Environmental Justice will provide an opportunity discuss sustainable solutions to the crisis.
There will be:
- Discussion groups.
- A space to share best practice.
- And a forum called the People's Permanent Assembly.
The People's Permanent Assembly will separate discussions into:
- The problems.
- The solutions.
- And how we can work together post Rio+20.
