UN Launches Global Conversation on Sustainable Development
On November 22, the United Nations launched a campaign ahead of its major conference on sustainable development in June next year, inviting governments, non-governmental organizations and people everywhere to engage in a global conversation about the communities they want to see in the future, from Info CENN.

The campaign ? Rio+20: The Future We Want ? aims to encourage people to envision how societies can build a future that promotes prosperity for everyone without degrading the planet?s natural environment, and to contribute their ideas through various mediums ? photos, letters, essays and drawings ? which will be combined to form an exhibit at the conference next year, to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
