Earth Debates

How do we plan a future that nurtures a healthy world alongside the needs of a growing population?
Have your say in the run up to the Earth Summit 2012 by getting involved in the Earth Debates and help shape the future of our planet.
In June 2012, experts will meet to set the agenda for a sustainable future at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Earth Summit 2012). The summit is also known as Rio+20 because it is being held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 20 years on from the first momentous Earth Summit which also took place there.

What are the Earth Debates about?

At 4 themed debates, a panel of leading experts chaired by Richard Black, the BBC's environment correspondent, will tackle key issues at the heart of the Earth Summit'sgreen economy agenda.
Your questions and comments will form an important part of these discussions, which will be webcast live from the Natural History Museum early in 2012. Find out about the 4 debate themes below and get involved.
