You can vote online for the best policy solutions

A social networking initiative of the Brazilian Government (supported by the United Nations), the "Rio Dialogues" is an attempt to create a bridge between civil society and the official proceedings of Rio+20. Thousands of participants from non-governmental organizations, academia and Governments have already used this forum to come up with 100 recommendations in 10 critical areas: water, oceans, food, energy, forests, employment, cities and innovation, fighting poverty, sustainable development as a response to economic and financial crises and sustainable production and consumption. Online voting started on 5 June, World Environment Day, and will continue for 10 days, to determine which of those recommendations will be presented formally to the world leaders who will gather in Rio.
