The past couple of days, Brazil has been hosting the Rio+20 conference focusing on a green economy for sustainable development and the institutional framework for sustainable development. World leaders from across the globe have joined forces to create a plan on how we can begin to make the future brighter for everyone. In order to meet the needs of the present, without compromising the future generation, we must all work together to find a sustainable way to treat our planet.
