How to mobilize youth globally to support the Goals of Rio+20 Summit?
25 Jul 2011 - 25 Jul 2011
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

New York, USA, Conference Room B

Another day, another UN Summit, right? Why should youth get out of bed to support this one? Well - it just might be the most important turning point in our lifetimes, that?s why! With Peak Oil behind us, and peak everything hurtling towards us by mid-century, our generation has no choice but to transition to a Green, Sustainable Economy.

That transition started 20 years ago at the original Rio Earth Summit: now - 20 years on - most nations are barely out of the starting gate. So - there has to be a massive acceleration in momentum by everyone to achieve that transition - in a good way. If we don?t start next year, the transition will likely be very bumpy and uncomfortable for all of us.

So - how do we mobilise youth to rise to this, the most important challenge of their generation? This Side Meeting brings together some of the best people to tell us how. Please join us - and learn how to make this Rio 2012 UN Summit different - one that opens the floodgates to seismic change!
