The discussions at Rio+Social explore the new role of social media and technology in sustainable development. Digital advancements have contributed to increased awareness and more effective calls-to-action worldwide.
The event will feature high-level conversations among global leaders and influencers representing digital media, technology, the private sector, philanthropy, the United Nations and civil society, on how we can harness social media to shape a sustainable future.
Rio+Social will take place June 19 alongside Rio+20, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, and is being organized by the United Nations Foundation, Mashable, 92nd Street Y, Ericsson, Energias de Portugal (EDP) and LiveAD.
Rio+Social invites everyone to participate in the Rio+20 conversations and, more importantly, encourages a discussion about solutions and how people everywhere can get involved.
