Daniela Mercury Headlines Rio+Social June 19
Daniela Mercury has long been involved in a variety of projects from cultural sustainability in Brazil’s most remote regions to speaking out on environmental issues. The Pearl of Brazil, who is as passionate about social change as she is about maintaining Brazil’s unique heritage, will headline Rio+Social on June 19. On the eve of the UN’s Rio 20+ summit, Mercury, who is still a UNICEF ambassador for Brazil, will speak with other leaders including Richard Branson and former Colorado Senator Timothy Wirth. The discussions during Rio+Social will explore the role of social media and technology in sustainable development.
