Agenda 21 & ICLEI
United Nations Agenda 21 is changing our form of government in a variety of ways.
Agenda 21 is an action plan of the United Nations (UN) related to sustainable development and was an outcome of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It is a comprehensive blueprint of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the UN, governments, and major groups in every area in which humans directly affect the environment.
The goal of Agenda 21 includes a change of the type of governance. ICLEI is the “think globally, act locally” phase of Agenda 21.
