National Consultation on Rio+20
3 Nov 2011 - 3 Nov 2011
2:00 PM - 6:00 PM

New Delhi

It has been nearly 20 years since the first Earth Summit held in Rio in 1992 under the aegis of the United Nations. It was the first conference of its kind setting the stage for many more world conferences on different issues. Since 1992, our generation has seen some massive changes sweeping across the world. Apart from the changes in global governance, it included emerging of new economies, World trade, 9/11, MDGs, climate crisis, and of course the most recent economic slowdown with wide implications on the socio-economic fabric of our societies. We have also seen a number of world conferences during the past 20 years. A lot of promises were made in these meetings; some have been honoured while a lot of these remain unfulfilled which requires consistent reminding and action on our part. So it is time the global civil society gets into action and makes its voice heard and felt by the powers that be at the international level.
