In preparation for Rio+20, it is necessary for the international community to consolidate its understanding of the absolute importance of social equity and global justice as key concern in shaping a Green Economy worldwide.
This meeting, aimed at effectively advancing the sustainable development agenda, is intended to offer an opportunity for representatives from government, major groups (of non-governmental stakeholders as defined by Agenda 21), international organizations and experts to collaborate on concrete proposals and inspire new ways of thinking, which will lead to other, more sustainable, paths for development and well being for all.
The conference results will be reflected in a Call to Action outcome document, to be presented in the 3° UN CSD preparatory Intersessional meeting, which will take place from 26 to 27 March in the United Nations Headquarters, in New York. The document will make recommendations for specific programmes and actions for governments and civil society towards fair share of natural resources.
Although this is an open event, it is necessary to register for this meeting by completing and returning before 5Th March 2012, the registration form by e-mail: ([email protected]).
