Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity
The UN General Assembly has agreed through two Resolutions to convene an international meeting entitled “Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity”, in Stockholm on 2 and 3 June 2022, during the week of World Environment Day. The meeting will commemorate the 50 years since the convening of the UN Conference on the Human Environment. It is also designed to help accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals during the Decade of Action including through a sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic
The objective of the national consultations is to stimulate an inclusive whole-of-society and whole-of-government dialogue on the main themes of Stockhom+50 as they relate to each national context. The consultations will provide in-person and virtual platforms for ideas, insights, and innovation that:
· Build a shared global vision on how to achieve a healthy planet and prosperity for all while accelerating progress on the Sustainable Development Goals and Multilateral Environment Agreements through an inclusive green recovery;
· Offer clear recommendations for governments, civil society and private sector on priority actions that can advance national and sectoral policies that address climate change and leverage nature-based solutions. This can build on and inform Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans (NBSAPs), green economy/green recovery, and SDG frameworks;
· Amplify the voices of the poor, youth, women, indigenous groups, local communities, and other marginalized groups; and
· Influence national and global debates that consider the views of all stakeholders.
