The major groups include Women; Children and Youth; Indigenous Peoples; Non-Governmental Organizations; Local Authorities; Workers and Trade Unions; Business and Industry; the Scientific and Technical Community; and Farmers. Suggestions will be considered for a compilation document that will serve as the basis for negotiations at the Rio+20 Conference. The submission deadline is 1 November 2011.
The process of submitting ideas for the Conference is open to Governments, United Nations organizations, and representatives of major groups. Major groups are invited to submit inputs through their organizing partners. Representatives from organizations or coalitions that do not fit neatly in any of the major groups can send in their inputs through the Rio+20 website. Please click here for the direct link.
