Children and RIO + 20

Youth delegates from around the world have wrapped up a gathering in Bandung to demand a greater commitment to sustainable development and environmental conservation from global leaders.

The United Nations Environment Program’s Tunza International Children and Youth Conference, held from Tuesday to Sunday, concluded with a statement asking governments to make significant progress at next year’s Rio+20 environmental summit in Rio de Janeiro.


“The trends and science tell us that we cannot wait another generation [until a Rio+40] before we act — the Green Economy is our only future,” the Bandung Declaration stated.
