Yesterday, Severn Cullis-Suzuki, an environmental activist, spoke to the world at Rio+Social, delivering a crowdsourced vision for a sustainable future. The speech was formulated through the 6-Minute Speech Project, a platform for a worldwide dialogue around the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, also known as Rio+20, in support of the UNs theme of The Future We Want. The project empowered people all over the world to submit their vision of a more sustainable future. The globally crowdsourced speech reflects the collective hopes and visions for a better world.
Rio+Social, held on the eve of the historic Rio+20 Summit, was a global, online conversation among corporate and digital media leaders, civil society, celebrities, and government representatives to share solutions for pressing global challenges such as access to energy, affordable health care, a clean and safe environment, and education.
