Headed to Brazil, Covering Rio + Social, Rio + 20 This Week

Headed to Brazil, Covering Rio + Social, Rio + 20 This Week


Tomorrow we will be headed to Rio to attend Rio + Social on Tuesday with 500 other influencers who use social media for social good. I am particularly excited about the lineup of speakers whose work I admire like Radha Muthiah, Executive Director, Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, Helen Clark, Administrator, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Ertharin Cousin, Executive Director, World Food Programme (WFP) among many others.

Over the course of the next few days we would love any retweets, shares, likes, pins, and +1s that you can share. Above anything else we will be amplifying the rights of women in sustainable development and seeing what the world is doing to ensure women have equal access to land rights, energy, credit, global markets, and food security.

Additionally we will listen keenly to information and innovative approaches about using social and new media to do more good in this world at Rio + Social.

All of this promises to be an amazing week, with a ton of information and sights and sounds to share from Rio.
