UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s "Rio+Social" conference video message. Excerpt “Back in 1992, we used snail mail and faxes. There was no Facebook, no Twitter, Now, people around the world can connect like never before. We can learn from each other. We can push for action. And we can challenge leaders to live up to their words. Maintain this network … make it stronger … and keep the pressure on so the decisions taken this week are the actions carried out around the world for years to come.”
