The sequel to the 1992 Earth Summit, Rio+20 has generated various frenzied schemes to clean up the city in time for the arrival of some of the world’s most important politicians. Among the visitors, Ban Ki-Moon, British deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and France's recently inaugurated President Hollande will arrive in Rio to discuss strategies for a greener global economy within the context of sustainable development and the eradication of poverty. What the world hopes for, however, is a coherent political document spelling out a path to significantly reducing mankind's impact on the planet with the co-operation of the world's biggest and most powerful economies and industries.

Outside of RioCentro, official events are to be held at the Athlete's Park (
Avenida Salvador Allende, Jacarepaguá), where pavillions from a range of countries attending Rio+20 are to be open to the public except on 20-22 June when the security is stepped up for the Summit.

Flamengo Park will host The People's Summit within which the Museum of Modern Art (MAM) will house an exhibition dedicated to sustainable development. Pier Mauá's warehouses present the Innovation and Technology Fair as well as a range of exhibitions (open 13-24 June, Mon-Fri 11am-7pm; Sat-Sun 10am-7pm).
