Taking Grassroots Women's Voices to Rio+20

EMAGAZINE | JUNE 2012

This week, as world leaders convene in Rio de Janeiro to decide a viable future for our children and the planet, we're cranking up the volume on the often-unheard voices of grassroots women on the front lines of a growing ecological crisis.

Using the power of interactive media, we asked our community of women leaders to share their on-the-ground realities and advise policymakers at the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. As their courageous voices echo throughout the forum, we invite you to read their stories.
