It is with great enthusiasm that we congratulate the organizers of the Glob-All Mix project for the collection of never-before-seen works by 30 internationally known graphic designers, pieced together for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development – Rio+20.

This initiative, inspired by the central themes of the conference, stimulates creativity and helps translate complex concepts into powerful and striking messages. The messages convened by Rio+20 are important, and deserve to be communicated by the most talented artists in the field of graphic design.

I am certain that, by supporting the implementation of this project and its ample diffusion, we will be reiterating our commitment to the paradigm of sustainable development, by which we seek to achieve economic growth and social inclusion with the preservation of the environment.

Executive Secretary of the National Commission for Rio+20


Glob-All Mix / 30 Posters for a Sustainable World

When news first broke out that Rio de Janeiro would be hosting the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development – Rio+20, I immediately thought of reediting the experience of the event 30 Posters on Environment and Development, a project I did twenty years ago for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development – Rio-92.

I then invited 30 of the greatest designers of our time from all over the world, and they all accepted the challenge of participating in the Glob-All Mix – 30 Posters for a Sustainable World.

The result, once again, is spectacular. The complete collection of 30 posters will be the Brazilian Government’s official gift to all the heads of state and delegations that will be participating in the conferences in Rio de Janeiro. In addition, the posters will be simultaneously exhibited in Rio de Janeiro and in several other countries – with the support of the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs –, reminding the world that humanity can be viable.
