Towards a Global Pact for the Environment: Launch of the Global Pact Coalition – Cambridge University

31 March 2021 - 31 March 2021

We are glad to invite you to join us and the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance for a webinar presenting the Global Pact Coalition!

In 2022, a declaration will be adopted to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Stockholm Conference. In order for this text to live up to expectations, civil society needs to unite behind a single motto : ambition for the planet.

A Coalition has been formed to rally all stakeholders behind this call: the Global Pact Coalition. Together, we want to push States to act and adopt a Global Pact for the Environment.

This Webinar will seek to answer four questions:

  1. What is the Global Pact for the Environment?
  2. Why do we need such a text?
  3. How would its adoption have a concrete impact?
  4. Where are negotiations heading to?


  • Yann Aguila, Director General of the Global Pact Coalition.
  • Ginevra le Moli, Professor at Leiden University.
  • Maria Antonia Tigre, Regional Director for Latin America at the Global Network for the Study of Human Rights and the Environment.
  • Jorge E. Viñuales, Harold Samuel Professor at the University of Cambridge.

Organized by: The Global Pact Coalition and the Cambridge Center for Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Governance.
