On one wall, you could see posters made for the Rio conference twenty years ago, including one by Hungarian artist István Orosz. Another group of works was created by applied and fine artists, members of the Hungarian Poster Society in 2007, while the third part included the actual posters, images of the GLOB-ALL MIX 2012 exhibition.

The current exhibition, which was opened by the Brazilian Ambassador to Hungary, Sérgio Edurado Moreira Lima, was the idea of Brazilian designer Felipe Taborda. It can be seen in 43 countries simultaneously. In Hungary, it takes a national tour after leaving Budapest.

The Rio+20 conference in Rio de Janeiro was attended, among others, by Hungarian President János Áder, as well, who called for international cooperation and community-based education programs to make water policy in the world more efficient.
