We’re moving into the final week of Rio+20, and WRI’s experts are on the ground for all the action. Each day, we’ll bring you highlights of upcoming WRI events. Check out the details below on what we’ve got going on tomorrow. And be sure to visit the full list of all WRI events at Rio+20.

As for me, I’ll be at the climate events all afternoon today. Tomorrow morning, we’ll be bringing some journalists to visit Rio’s new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor, a system launched with guidance from WRI’s EMBARQ Center for Sustainable Transportation.
