The theme of the Rio+20 conference is “the future we want”, and the initiative of Sustainia is meant to allow people to envisage what such a future would look like. Behind the Sustainia Award is the Sustainia Award Committee which is chaired by Honarary Chair Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Other committee members include Connie Hedegaard (European Commissioner for Climate Action), Gro Harlem Brundtland (former Prime Minister of Norway and former Director General of WHO) and Dr. Pachauri (Chair of the IPCC). “.
