Rio+20

With support from EJN, in June of 2012 a group of 30 journalists that included fellows, editors, trainers and staff from 20 countries traveled to Rio de Janeiro to attend and cover the negotiations of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, also known as the Rio+20 Summit. Over 10 days, the journalists participated in capacity-building activities focused on the main themes of the international meeting; met with representatives from government agencies, civil society, and multilateral organizations; and provided locally relevant reporting to audiences back home.

During Rio+20, EJN staff and O Eco launched InfoAmazonia, an interactive map that provides timely news and reports of environmental threats in Amazon region through an innovative visualization of data. To read more about the launch, click here
