In 1972, the first United Nations (UN) conference on the human environment was held in 1972 in Stockholm. This meeting was the starting point for the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), which is the global authority for the implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development. 50 years after this meeting, the governments of Sweden and Kenya are commemorating the 1972 meeting by hosting the UN meeting “Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity”.
SDSN and Stockholm +50: Acting for a healthy planet
The United Nations' Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) mobilizes global scientific and technological expertise to promote practical solutions for sustainable development. One important task is to connect researchers, sustainability professionals and change agents, to address the triple-planetary crisis and how it can be mitigated.
Inspired by the Stockholm +50, SDSN Northern Europe and SDSN Kenya invite SDSN members and other interested organisations worldwide in a discussion on how we can create action for the environmental dimension of sustainable development.
Putting science into policy and practice for a healthy planet.
