General Contenta) What are the expectations for the outcome of Rio+20, and what are the concrete proposals in this regard, including views on a possible structure of the Outcome document? As a participant from Cameroon in the Tunza international youth and children conference at Bandung Indonesia that took place from the 27th September-1st October 2011.I strongly recommend the Bandung declaration titled the voice of children and youth as a roadmap for Rio+12 to the politicians to hear voice of the youths who are the next generation of decision-makers and who stand for action and change.By protecting and defending the rights of youths for environmental justice to all should be the main outcome.
b) What are the comments, if any, on existing proposals: e.g., a green economy roadmap, framework for action, sustainable development goals, a revitalized global partnership for sustainable development, or others? The politicians should work toward sustainable development through a green economy transition by supporting Governments,youths, companies, industries, businessmen and local communities with sound environmental responsible projects and initiatives to enforce global partnership for the future generation.
c) What are the views on implementation and on how to close the implementation gap, which relevant actors are envisaged as being involved (Governments, specific Major Groups, UN system, IFIs, etc.); The politicians should design policies which encourage the youths to be involved actively in all decision-making processes. This will help the governments and institutions to preserve resources for the future generation. The children should be the main actor because they better know their problems and solutions, to realize the vision of sustainable world.
d) What specific cooperation mechanisms, partnership arrangements or other implementation tools are envisaged and what is the relevant time frame for the proposed decisions to be reached and actions to be implemented? Lobby all governments to make Rio+20 Earth Summit atop priority and adopt more sustainable lifestyles and educate our stakeholders and local communities, on green economy transition. This Decision should be reached and implemented the next 10 years.
