The UNDP World Centre for Sustainable Development (RIO+ Centre) is pleased to announce that during this spring, the documentary Baia Urbana (or Urban Bay) will continue to be screened internationally, nationally and, foremost, in Rio de Janeiro, in honor of the city that inspired the marine biologist Ricardo Gomes to dive into the yet unknown underwater life of Guanabara Bay.
The documentary Urban Bay explores the biodiversity of Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro, and addresses three serious problems affecting the oceans: pollution, ocean acidification and global warming.
Its international launch took place on 02 June 2017 at the Buenos Aires International Human Rights Film Festival (avant-première) followed by global screenings in New York City at the UN Oceans Conference, and the event Urban Bay: Eyes Wide Open Under Rio de Janeiro's Ocean co-organized by Columbia University and the RIO+ Centre in an effort to raise awareness on the needs for ocean’s recuperation and the 2030 Agenda. Last month, the documentary was nationally launched at Espaço Itaú in Rio de Janeiro at a special exhibition of Filmambiente Festival, following the RIO+ Talk “Sustainable Solutions for the Urban Bays and Agenda 2030” that took place at the Institute of Economics of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (PPED-IE / UFRJ) on 25 September in an effort to engage academia and civil society in promoting the SDG#14, Life Below Water.
