Stockholm+50, what and why it is important

Published on 10.05.2022 at 18:12

On June 2nd and 3rd, 2022, a crucial international environmental meeting will be held in Stockholm; anchored in the Decade of Action, under the theme "Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all; our responsibility, our opportunity." This high-level meeting will be hosted by Sweden with the support of Kenya following months of consultations and discussions with individuals, communities, organisations, and governments around the world.

 

Stockholm+50 will commemorate the 50 years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, which made the environment a pressing global issue for the first time. 122 countries attended the conference and participants adopted a series of principles on the environment, including the Stockholm Declaration and Action Plan for the Human Environment. Whereas the United Nations Environment Programme was created as a result of the conference. Stockholm+50 is in the same week as World Environment Day, held on June 5th each year. It comprises an opening segment, four plenary meetings, three leadership dialogues, and a closing segment.

 

By recognising the importance of multilateralism in tackling the Earth’s triple planetary crisis of climate change, pollution and waste, nature and biodiversity loss, and other planetary ills that are affecting current and future prosperity and wellbeing, the Stockholm+50 aims to act as a springboard to accelerate the implementation of the UN Decade of Action to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals, including the 2030 Agenda, Paris Agreement on climate change, the post-2020 global Biodiversity Framework, and encourage the adoption of green post-covid recovery plans. Stockholm+50 is designed as a collaborative and multi-stakeholder meeting, open to different participants who are invited to share experiences and initiatives to protect the planet and contribute to sustainable and inclusive development.
