Severn Cullis-Suzuki returns to Rio 20 years after stopping the world
"If we want to change the world we have to find the solutions ourselves and implement them in our own communities and then go out and demand the change from our politicians ... Twenty years later, citizen engagement hasn't been enough to filter up and change those in power. ... the growth of the economy remains foremost to politicians and institutions clinging to power."
"Our hope is love ... intergenerational love ... to leverage the love a parent has for their child ..." -Severn Cullis-Suzuki (Rio+20)

Environmental activist Severn Cullis-Suzuki returned to Rio on 16 June 2012, some two decades after stopping the world with her impassioned plea to governments to do more to preserve the world and its ecosystems for future generations.
Severn is in Rio as part of the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development and delivered her first address in the Brazilian city since 1992 during the day-long "Green Cross Returns to Rio" event on 16 June 2012.
The Green Cross event recognized the issues and activities that drive the NGO founded by President Mikhail Gorbachev out of the 1992 Earth Summit.
