This afternoon session bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders together on the first day of Rio +20, the UN Conference celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, to explore our understanding of cultural values and consider how we can best collaborate to achieve the future we want.
Conversation Provocation by Tom Crompton, co-author of ‘Common Cause: The Case for Working with our Cultural Values’.
Tom will give a short presentation on the importance of cultural values in driving change, and at the ways those values are shaped. This understanding reveals a major connection between a vast array of major issues – sustainability, racism, human rights, community welfare, climate change, youth and older people exclusion and biodiversity loss.

Using an interactive, positive and engaging format this session will bring representatives from government, local authorities, business, civil society, NGOs and communities as well as older and younger people together to examine values more closely and to explore opportunities to bring about lasting, systemic change.
