Dr Janusz Brzeszczynski to attend prestigious Earth Summit in Rio

Dr Janusz Brzeszczynski, Senior Lecturer in Finance

Following his appointment last year to the Global Scientific Committee of the UNESCO's Planet Earth Institute (PEI) Dr Janusz Brzeszczynski has been invited to attend the prestigious Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro (known also as: "Rio +20").

Organised by UNESCO the Earth Summit will focus on two specific themes: a green economy in the context of poverty eradication and sustainable development; and an institutional framework for sustainable development. Ahead of the summit in June Dr Brzeszczynski will also attend a roundtable event, to be chaired by Lord Boateng, at the Westminster Parliament to discuss expectations ahead of Rio +20 with key politicians, academics and policy-influencers.
