This FREE event (RSVP required), will feature interactive panels and key one on one discussions with leaders from: Bunge Limited, the Rockefeller Foundation, UNDP, TB Bank, NRDC and the Acumen Fund among others.

As Rio+20 approaches and the world is prompted to review “the Future We Want”, we invite you to help us establish the Columbia University Earth summit 2012: A Call for Action our own arena for discussion, learning  and reaching answers together.
