The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in June 2012 will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the U.N. Conference on Environment and Development by mapping out new, exciting strategies that will point us toward a green and prosperous future. Right now, Erik Assadourian and I are co-directing the 2012 edition of Worldwatch's annual State of the World, a comprehensive report that explores ways in which we can promote green jobs and reconcile social and environmental goals. At Rio, we will present a year's worth of research to policymakers, activists, and educators at customized briefings on new ways to promote sustainable prosperity----fighting global poverty without sacrificing our fragile environment.
