What kind of world do we want for our great-great-grandchildren? People, profit and the environment – can we balance them, or do we have to make a choice? Can global summits achieve anything? How do we create change – starting now?

Twenty years on from the first historic Rio Earth Summit, urgent action is now needed to address human and environmental crises on a global scale. It is time for a real, inclusive conversation about the world we are leaving to future generations – and it is vital that today's youth have a voice in the decisions that will affect them for decades to come.
