ANPED, EEB, CIDSE, CEEweb, in partnership with EESC (European Economic and Social Committee) have the honour to invite you to attend an European high-level conference on Rio+20: “Achieving Global Justice in the Green Economy”, which will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on 15 March, 2012. This conference plans to address one of the main themes of the up-coming UN CSD Rio+20 Summit: “Green Economy in the context of Sustainable Development and poverty eradication”, and stimulate innovative thinking towards fair natural resources sharing. Up to now the preparation debates have stressed the absolute importance of social equity and global justice as key concern in shaping a Green Economy worldwide but no concrete proposals were made so far for a fair share of the natural resources worldwide.
