Gillard, Burke and the road to Rio 20

Australia's submission for Rio 20 is now in the open, so is it possible some unexpected proposals will gather support and turn the event into another significant milestone?

“The UN is again bringing together governments, international institutions and major groups 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 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.” -UN Rio 20 website

The media is currently full of news about Australia's preparations for the London Olympics. Yet barely a word has been written about preparations for the critical United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, due to open in four weeks.
