Rio+20 People’s summit gathers pace

Rio+20 People's summit gathers pace. Two hundred civil society groups - including environmentalists, unions, religious groups and indigenous tribes – will take part in the Peoples' Summit, which is expected to climax with a rally of 50,000 people on the 20th June.

On that day, more than 110 world's leaders will fly in for the Earth summit, marking the two decades that have passed since the original Rio gathering in 1992 set in place a system of international conventions and policy documents designed to bring the human economy back into balance with the global environment.
