Commission gathers views on ways to follow-up Rio+20

The United Nations Rio+20 world summit, held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012, aimed to secure renewed political commitment to sustainable development. To follow up on the conference, the European Commission wishes to develop specific actions and concrete measures to make sustainable development a reality, within the EU and globally. A public consultation is being held to gather views and ideas. These will be an input to a Communication from the Commission on the follow-up to Rio+20, planned for the first quarter of 2013. The consultation is open until 15 January 2013.
Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik said: "Rio+20 was not just another conference – it was a loud and clear call for action to secure a sustainable future globally, a call for change to improve and sustain our quality of lives by respecting the boundaries of the only planet we share. Rio+20 gave the impulse; it is now in our hands to make sustainable development a reality in every corner of the planet. And we want to engage everyone in the debate on the concrete steps which need to be taken."
