What is the RIO+20 Summit?

I wrote a paper in college about the Kyoto Summit. Ever since I read about RIO+20 I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. Since realistically as a blogger I am not going to be able to attend. I found out about this twitter party tomorrow that is going to talk about what we as people, not just Moms/Dads, bloggers, activists…etc. can learn from the upcoming summit.

I hope to be able to find a way to get information about what is going on at the summit and share it here. This twitter party will hopefully give me some key information!

Here is the information about it from Momscleanairforce.org

LIVE CHAT with MILLION MOMS CHALLENGE: Learn about the Rio+20 Summit as world leaders focus on global sustainability.

JOIN US Thursday June 7th, 1pm ET for a 30 minute live chat. Moms Clean Air Force will be co-hosting with the United Nations Foundation, Moms Rising and Mom Bloggers for Social Good to discuss:

What does Rio+20 mean for you and the rest of the planet?

You care about clean air in your area. You’re trying to buy local and minimize waste. You’re saving energy, recycling and maybe even lobbying your local representatives. In short, you’re doing all you can to protect our planet make good choices with your resources. So–how is the rest of the world doing and how can you be a part of what’s happening globally?

We will be chatting with Aaron Sherinian, Vice-President of Communications and Public Relations for the United Nations Foundation (UNF) and Richenda Van Leeuwen, Senior Director of UNF’s Energy & Climate team, for a briefing on key issues and why moms need to take interest in Rio+20 outcomes.

We will discuss what’s at stake, learn about key topics, how sustainability issues especially affect moms and kids around the world and look at ways we can get involved with this historical global event.
