100 opinion-makers and 30,000 young citizens from 30 countries
join forces and share ideas to prepare the Rio+20 conference.
Towards a sustainable world
We addressed various topics in the framework of our study among the world youth and the panel of 100 personalities. Here are some examples of questions we discussed:
What has been, during the last 20 years, the most memorable revolutions in the progress towards a sustainable development? Which sectors were the most innovative in terms of sustainability?
Wich tools and factors facilitate this kind of revolutions? What are the obstacles?
What must the next revolution be? And, most importantly, what role would you like to have in it?
Some interview excerpts linked to this topic:
- Demand for resources is set to continue to rise precipitously in coming decades, even as supply constraints multiply, posing challenges for economic growth, the environment and social well-being. Environmental effects such the over-exploitation of groundwater resources further increase the vulnerability of resource supply systems. Institutions of every stripe will need to rethink how they manage resources and bolster long-term resilience: a resource revolution.
