Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all

12 May, 2022

On 2 and 3 June 2022, Stockholm+50, a high-level international environmental meeting, will be held in Sweden.

Anchored in the UN’s Decade of Action to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals, the event theme is “A healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity”. The meeting will follow months of consultations and discussions with individuals, communities, organizations and governments around the world. A one-day preparatory meeting was held at United Nations Headquarters in New York on 28 March 2022.

Stockholm+50 will commemorate the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment and celebrate 50 years of global environmental action. By recognizing the importance of multilateralism in tackling the Earth’s triple planetary crisis – climate, nature, and pollution – the event aims to act as a springboard to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, Paris Agreement on climate change, the post-2020 global Biodiversity Framework, and encourage the adoption of green post-COVID-19 recovery plans.
