Just in case you are unfamiliar, Outreach is the only stakeholder news magazine distributed directly to delegates and attendees in the run-up and at the Rio+20 Conference. Produced at various international meetings on the environment since 1997, Outreach aims to empower stakeholders and provide space for debates and discourses on topics being negotiated at intergovernmental meetings.

In the run-up to Rio+20, Outreach has provided an essential platform for stakeholder dialogue, informing both delegates and those following the Rio process.  We have published articles, interviews and profiles from the leading thinkers involved in Rio+20 and recorded podcasts from key discussions at side events.  Each daily edition is shaped around a theme discussed in Rio, allowing for more targeted coverage and diverse discussions on each topic.

Advertising in Outreach

Advertising space is available in Outreach throughout Rio+20 and this can be used for events or programmes relating to Rio+20.  Banners need to be provided in a black and white, high resolution jpeg format, with the diameter of: (w) 210 mm x (h) 75 mm.  Banners cost US $500 per slot.  For more information please contact Georgie (This email address is being protected from spambots.
