Rio+20NGO Facebook group launched by NGO's Major Group
Truly committed to our role as facilitators of debates for securing policy inputs from the NGOs during the preparation process and Summit of Rio+20, we?re investing in new communication channels to broaden and strengthen your participation and collaborations. Besides our Ning and Wikispace websites, where civil society can share and discuss everything related to the Rio conference an help us preparing statements and joint-documents towards the Conference, we launched, in a joint initiative with CIVICUS and Consumers International, a Rio+20Ngo?s Facebook group.

This Rio+20 NGO Facebook group platform is where all UN-accredited NGOs and activists can discuss and inform each other on topics, events and others related to the upcoming Rio+20 UN CSD Summit in 2012 (4-6 June).
The group is meant to be totally interactive, so not only you can get up to date information but also participate, share and start new dynamics! All NGO community members are invited to share news, start discussions, upload videos or post events related to the Conference. Join us, for and during the Rio+20 UN CSD, using this group as one of NGO?s "strategy meeting" point!
