GYSD and Rio+You Partner to Mobilize Youth!

20 years ago, world leaders met in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to discuss the world’s most pressing environmental issues and create new guidelines that would frame sustainable development policy for future generations. This June marks 20 years since the Earth Summit in Rio, and on June 20 world leaders will convene in Rio for the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. You can be part of the process by joining your Global Youth Service Day project with the Rio+You campaign!


Rio+You is an awareness campaign about sustainable development, a youth movement for all those who feel young, for those who want to change, participate, scream and work together for a better world!!!
