Chinese actress Zhou Xun and American megastar Angelina Jolie were invited as only representatives from entertainment industry to attend the Earth Summit, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June.

As the only Chinese Goodwill Ambassador appointed by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Zhou Xun has made significant contributions to environmental causes in recent years.

Zhou Xun stated, after hearing the news, that she felt deeply honored and that her schedule for 2012 would give priority to public welfare.

The Earth Summit, also known as The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), was initiated in 1992. It aims to resolve the emergent problems related to environmental protection and social and economic development. The event is held decennially with leaders from more than 100 countries and regions from around the world.
