The Meaning of the Conference This is not a Conference only on the Environment, but on SD. This is about forging new development models, to be chosen by each country, respecting specific realities of economic, social and environmental conditions and priorities.. The Conference will happen in a very particular moment, when developed countries face a deep economic crisis. On the other hand, many developing countries are showing importante social, economic and environmental results.. The present crisis highlights that past choices have exhausted the world’s capacity to tackle the challenges of development. If social and environment concerns have been put aside by irrational economic growth, the economic crisis is a clear evidence that we cannot anymore run the planet the way we were doing.. In this context, the Conference will be a great opportunity to discuss new development models under the evidence that developing countries have a new and significative role as part of the solution of the crisis.
