Bring Your Voice to Brazil!
The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20, kicks off in a few weeks in Rio de Janeiro. It is a historic meeting, and a historic moment for our world.
But even if you're not sitting at the table in Rio, your voice can be part of the discussion. You can be part of "The 6-Minute Speech Project," a unique speech built by people from all over the world through the power of social media.
This speech will combine your ideas, your concerns, and your voices into a bold statement about the future of our planet. It will be shared with world leaders at Rio+Social, a meeting designed to help give voice to thousands of people who support the UN's work to create a better world.
Join in this worldwide conversation — contribute to the 6-Minute Speech and tell us what you think are the greatest challenges the world is facing today. Improving global health, protecting our environment, promoting sustainable energy for all, empowering women and girls, creating livable cities or access to clean water...all these issues are on the agenda, and they need your voice to help build momentum and find smart, innovative solutions.
Help us build the "6 Minute Speech" by Tweeting or posting on Facebook using these hashtags:
#RIOPLUSENERGY; #RIOPLUSFOOD; #RIOPLUSCITIES; #RIOPLUSWATER; #RIOPLUSWORK; #RIOPLUSOCEANS; #RIOPLUS6mins; #RIOPLUSWOMEN; #RIOPLUSSOCIAL.
You can also upload videos or pin images on Pinterest. We'll be listening to your ideas. We're collecting your comments from May 30 to June 10, 2012, then compiling them into this unique speech — relaying a bold message about "The Future We Want" for world leaders and people everywhere.
Raise your voice, and be part of this historic moment for our world.
