    Good afternoon everyone. I have just come across this phrase that I have never seen before, but that appears to mean something like 'taking shape'. Does that make sense to my Brazilian friends?

    The context is as follows:

    ...., um movimento que teve início durante a Rio+20 e que, agora, vai ganhando uma cara.

    My attempt: ..., a movement that began during the Rio+20 and that is now taking shape.

    Sim, é isto. Tomando forma, tornando-se conhecido, ganhando um nome, mostrando quem está por trás, dando-se a reconhecer.
