In 2012 the City of Rio de Janeiro will be the stage of one of the biggest events in international history, the Rio + 20.
During the event, attention from all over the world will be focused on the city, but that doesn't mean that the effervescence will only start when Rio + 20 does. On the contrary, the whole scientific community is profoundly engaged and ansious about the Conference's results. Those results will only be achieved through intensive debates, researches and information. For this reason to link science and society, to bring them close, has never been such a flagrant necessity. Seeking to fill this gap, PUC-Rio is preparing an intensive agenda of activities for information, knowledge and conscience diffusion in many projects during 2012's first half, just before the Rio + 20 Conference, which will take place from June 20 to 22. All trough 2012's first semester, PUC-Rio will host many lectures, workshops, roundtables etc., to be attended by various highly qualified and specialized guests, both national and international.
