What to expect at Stockholm+50 this week

The full story was originally published on 30 May 2022 on the Stockholm+50 site

Stockholm+50 begins this week, bringing leaders and representatives from governments, businesses, international organizations, civil society and youth together in the Swedish capital.

Held on 2 and 3 June, the meeting aims to drive action toward a healthy planet for the prosperity of all and will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment. Held in Stockholm in 1972, the Conference placed environmental action at the forefront of the global agenda and started a dialogue between industrialized and developing countries on the links between the environment, economic growth and human well-being.

So that together we can reach for that long term sustainability and so that the spirit of Stockholm can come together in what we know right now is a divided world - we have only One Earth.'
