Achievement of Commitment

Rio+20 is about making and delivering commitments. India is committed to Sustainable Development and to achieve that India needs a workforce that is sensitive towards Sustainable Development. Rio+20 conference will send out a critical message and we want to ensure that this message and the related goals reaches to Indian citizens, especially the students. We commit to take Rio+20 Goals to a million Indians by December 2012 we will earn One Million Rios.

How this will be achieved

The Rio+20 India Program will be instrumental in taking the Rio+20 Goals to a million Indians by December 2012. The program will reach out through a certification program for schools in India, corporate workshops and Model Rio+20 India Summits.

At school and college level the aim is to focus on sustainable development related outlook, lifestyle and career prospects. At corporate level, the aim is to stimulate discussion and action leading to measurable commitments and follow up. These activities will be driven through study curriculums, scholarly talks, screening of Rio related films, presentations and several public contests & quizzes.

The currency of the future is the Rio. We have set out to earn One Million Rios
