30 volunteers in all roam the RioCentro conference venue approaching delegates, not always with good results.

“Approximately 3 people a day say yes to me,” said Danielle Lodi of Brazil

“I hope we have many more as the money will go towards good environment activities in Brazil.”

Travel from Samoa to Brazil came to 30 tonnes of carbon which cost us 50 Realz to offset.
