"Rivers for Life" Human Banner at Rio+20
June 19, 2012
Nearly 1500 people used Rio's Flamengo Beach as a canvas on June 19th, 2012. Their bodies formed the lines of an enormous image promoting the importance of free-running rivers, truly clean energy sources like solar power and including indigenous knowledge as part of the solution to climate issues. The activity was led by Brazil’s many indigenous peoples organized under the umbrella of the Articulation of Brazilian Indigenous Peoples.
