The Stockholm+50 Summit

2 June 2022 - 3 June 2022
Hybrid event in Stockholm

In June 1972, the landmark Stockholm Declaration was adopted as a result of the first major environmental conference ever held. It led to the creation of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

50 years later, in June 2022, the Stockholm+50 Summit will bring together heads of state and government to celebrate, in Stockholm, the 50th anniversary of the Stockholm Conference.

Anchored in the Decade of Action, this summit follows months of consultations and meetings between governments, organisations and members of the civil society. It aims to facilitate 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-19 recovery plans.

The Global Pact Coalition will work with diplomats to promote the importance of the international recognition of environmental rights.
