Rio+20: A movement for change
In Focus shines the spotlight on the other side of the Rio+20 Summit. It is widely reported that over 100 world leaders will meet in Rio for the UN Conference on Sustainable Development but it is less well known that 70,000 businesses and NGOs are expected to participate. As EU Commissioner Janez Potočnik said, “We can't wait for governments alone to take the initiative.”
The Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe - UNRIC provides information on UN activities to the countries of the region. It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information. Its outreach activities extend to all segments of society and joint campaigns, projects and events are organized with partners including the EU, governments, the media, NGOs, schools and local authorities.
