Special Message From Japan for Rio+20
With a view to sharing Japan’s experiences and lessons learned from the disasters of 2011, the Tokyo United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) has created a special booklet entitled “Learning from the 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami ‘Good Practices’ from Japan: Towards a Sustainable Future”.
Written in Japanese and English, the booklet will be distributed at international conferences including the upcoming United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in Rio de Janeiro, 20–22 June 2012.
United Nations volunteers at the Tokyo UNIC hand-tied symbolic blue ribbons to each booklet.
