The 2002 Conference

On the 10th Anniversary of the Rio Earth Summit, in June 2002, the Sierra Club of Canada held a conference to address the state of our natural and human environments. At the conference, participants examined progress since the first U.N. Conference on the Human Environment in 1972 (Stockholm) and the U.N. Conference on Environment and Development in 1992 (the Rio “Earth Summit”), and formulated recommendations to governments and society. These recommendations appear in the Kingston Declaration.
