The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, known as “Rio+20”, which will take place on 4-6 June 2012 will be hugely significant as world leaders will review progress that has been made towards achieving sustainable development since the 1992 UN Conference on Sustainable Development and the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development. The conference will debate crucial topics related to Sustainable Development such as the institutional framework, green economy, renewed political commitment, progress up to date and implementation gaps. It is therefore crucial that there is a strong youth presence. This requires international cooperation among youth.
Therefore Rio+twenties, with its partners the European Youth Forum and Road to Rio+20 is co-organising an International Youth Strategy Meeting at the University on Youth and Development on the 19-24 September 2011 to mobilise young people and exchange different approaches to the conference.
