The World Conference on Sustainable Development “Rio + 20″, according to the general opinion, was not up to the global challenges, ecological, economic and social. At the association Coherence Rio + 20, this lack of commitment is reflected by the difficulty to implement our project and find an arena other than “side events” and the People’s Summit for present the problem of maritime transport. We thank the Institute for International Policy Civilization to the place that gave us during the recent seminar “Rio, 20 years later,” to which we shall return later on to our readers.
The board of Coherence Rio + 20 has taken the decision to postpone the floating forum, for financial reasons. But the association will be present with its partners at the Rio + 20 Conference and at the People’s Summit.
The past 10 days were very rich in exchanges with potential partners for Coherence Rio + 20, which are now confirmed.
Up to date, the confirmed partnerships are:
The International Investigation Institute for a Civilisation Policy
Created in February 2008 under the patronage of EDGAR MORIN, the International Investigation Institute for a Civilisation Policy has for mission to mobilise cross-cutting research on the major planetary challenges. The IIRPC chose to work in three fields: the biosphere, social representations and gouvernance.
The French Network of Students for Sustainable Development (REFEDD)
REFEDD is composed of more than 90 student associations engaged on the long term to contribute to the building of a fair, solidarity-based and environmentally friendly society. Its main objectives are: the facilitation of an exchange platform between the network’s associations, the support of students in their projects.
Transport COHERENCE is a sail shipping transport company whose objective is to freight goods and people within a balanced economic scheme following a method which guarantees a high social value. The shipping services of TC are currently being built.
ENERGIES 2050 is a non-profit organisation born in 2009 from the gathering of citizens of different nationalities and professional horizons as well as international experts on issues of climate change and energy as well as sustainable development. The association advocates an approach of energy in agreement with the principles of eco-development at the heart of citizen action.
The Floating Forum for Sustainable Development will gather actors of the social & economic transition, which it will bring in sailboats from the port of La Rochelle (France) to a marina in Rio de Janeiro (Brasil), of the World Summit on Sustainable Development, which will take place from June 20th to June 24th, 2012.
