2:00 pm 19 September 2011 — 5:00 pm 19 September 2011 at Sao Paolo, Brazil.

The official process of the United Nations for Rio+20 presents a political projection that does not reflect the urgency to debate on questionning the sustainable development in its conceptual and factual aspects. Civil society will have to disclose and to propose the changes that it desires to construct in the next decades, so that important subjects have to be in the agenda. The involved group in the constitution of the Charter of Universal Responsibilities has the objective to establish priorities, to create mechanisms for the management of interdependences and the preservation of the integrity of the planet with ethics and responsibility. This seminary has as the intention to extend these reflections to  the academic community and to the civil society, and to integrate the preparatory process of Rio+20
