Rio +20 – Building our common future

Rio +20, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), is due to take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 4 to 6 June, 2012.  Twenty years after the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, and ten years after the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, the UN is again bringing together governments, international institutions and major groups, including business, academia, non-governmental organisations, trades unions, community groups and others, to agree on a range of smart measures that can reduce poverty while promoting decent jobs, clean energy and a more sustainable and fair use of resources.  Rio +20 is billed as a historic opportunity to define pathways to a safer, more equitable, cleaner, greener and more prosperous world for all; a chance to move away from business-as-usual and to act to end poverty, address environmental destruction and build a bridge to the future.

Architects of the future combine sustainability with design

A fine architect combines design talent with engineering ability, social awareness and an aptitude for business. In recent years this skills set has, of necessity, expanded to include the pursuit of sustainable development. Today’s projects demand a clear understanding of the impact of modern technologies on the environment as well as the importance of wise water consumption, low energy usage and a light carbon footprint. Students of architecture who embrace these concepts and unite them with their artistic talent are those who will shape the built environment of the future.
