One of the objectives of Rio+20 is to assess the progress to date. That is why in this publication Eurostat provides analysis of trends
of sustainable development indicators (SDIs) combined with an interesting story. It is a guide to the EU SDIs and the trends they show.
It communicates statistical figures as seen through the eyes of fictional 17-year-old student Anne. Anne aims to find answers to many
questions that relate to our everyday life and our future. These questions are answered while Anne is giving her presentation at a
Model UN conference. Through her analysis and discussions the reader is enabled to use statistics when drawing a conclusion about the
assessment of progress towards sustainable development.
