Thirty years of commitment to the environment

In 2022 the Conference of the United Nations, Rio 92, turns 30 years old, in which the
concept of sustainable development in a global scale was consolidated. In that moment
a commitment to Agenda 21 was made, a pact of intent between the United Nations to
promote a model of sustainable development.
Twenty years later, also in Rio de Janeiro, the Conference of the United Nations
on Sustainable Development, Rio +20, took place. The meeting had the goal of
renewing the political commitments for a sustainable development and assess the
progress and flaws on the range of the goals proposed in 1992. The Conference resulted
in the Report “The Future We Want”, a document that consolidates goals and outlines
the strategies and scope of action to achieve these goals. Within the operating areas, the
fields of Education and Technological Development appear as pillars to transform the
model of development and to change human behavior.
In order to continue the process of reflection and development of solution for the
sustainable development, the Government of the State of Rio de Janeiro and the City
Hall of the City of Rio de Janeiro are promoting in 2022 celebrative and operative event
to broaden the debate on the 30 years of the commitments settled in this territory, and
also reaffirm the role of Rio de Janeiro as a protagonist of building the future we want.
