Stockholm +50

a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity

Commemorating fifty years since the environment first took centre stage

It’s time for bold choices. It’s time for urgent action. It’s time for a better future on a healthy planet.

In June 2022 a crucial international environmental meeting will be held in Stockholm. Anchored in the Decade of Action, the theme of the international meeting is “Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity.”

The high-level meeting takes place on 2 and 3 June 2022, following months of consultations and discussions with individuals, communities, organizations and governments around the world. Recognizing the interconnections between humans and nature, Stockholm+50 will be an occasion to raise awareness about the importance of protecting our planet. It sets a path for us to overcome the triple planetary crisis of climate change, of nature and biodiversity loss, and of pollution and waste.

Stockholm+50also commemorates 50 years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, widely seen as the first global meeting that made the environment a pressing global issue. The 1972 Stockholm Declaration resulted in the formation of environment ministries and agencies, and produced a host of new global agreements to protect the environment.

The Stockholm+50 meeting is convened by the United Nations and is hosted by Sweden with support from the Government of Kenya. It will drive action to achieve sustainable development for the well-being of current and future generations.
