launches global conversation on sustainable development 22 November 2011 – The United Nations today launched a campaign ahead of its major conference on sustainable development (Rio+20) in June next year, inviting governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and people everywhere to engage in a global conversation about the communities they want to see in the future. “Sustainable development is a top priority for a simple reason – it cuts across all the challenges and priorities,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told a press briefing this morning. “We know that what we face – food insecurity, water scarcity, energy shortages, climate change, increasing carbon emissions and unhealthy oceans – all these are the priority challenges which we have to address.” Sustainable development is a top priority for a simple reason – it cuts across all the challenges and priorities “Opportunities like Rio+20 do not come along often,” Mr. Ban said.

Hayman Island on the Great Barrier Reef is about eight kilometres in circumference, with a population of just a few hundred. Photographer Lisa Burns, 27, has lived there for the past two years. Here she paints a picture of what it's like in one of the Earth's few remaining pockets without people. I moved over with my partner. We live in a studio apartment, it's like a hotel room, we don't have a kitchen or anything like that but we've got a balcony which looks over the ocean and the reef.
