The EESC conference ‘Go sustainable, be responsible! European civil society on the road to Rio+20′ from the 7th till 8th of February 2012 in Brussels is intended to voice European civil society’s positions on Rio+20 and help make Rio+20 a success. The conference is aimed at participants from European civil society associations, decision-makers, EU officials and public officials. After an introduction into the current state of the Rio+20 process the EESC conference will focus on the green economy as a means to enhance sustainable development within the limits of natural resources.
