This is the story of the Children of Rio, the generation born in the wake of the promises made at the Rio Summit of 1992. Ten years after Rio, in the year of the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development, TVE revisits seven of the children to find out just what has changed in their lives, and what the future holds for them. At ten years old, they have their own stories to tell. In this first programme we meet Rosamaria, born just a few kilometres from where the Rio Earth Summit took place, in one of the city’s largest slums; Erdo, born into a family of nomadic cattle herders in northern Kenya; and Panjy, born into a family dependent on the local fireworks industry in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
