What Rio+20 Was and Wasn't in 17 Photos

The official meetings and side events of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio+20, were held at Riocentro: a massive and very pedestrian un-friendly venue located 14 miles (in a straight line, following the coastline it would be about 20 miles) from the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Point being: commuting was nightmarish. This was, of course, for a reason: it was the only place to accommodate such a large number of people.
