Registration now open for Stockholm+50 side event

Registration is now open for the one-day event "Sustainable planet, sustainable health - how science-based solutions can drive transformative change" on June 1, 2022! The event is organized by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and the University Alliance Stockholm Trio, consisting of the Karolinska Institute, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and Stockholm University. "Sustainable planet, sustainable health" is organized in conjunction with the Stockholm+50 conference convened by the Swedish government and the United Nations to commemorate 50 years since the 1972 UN Conference on the Human Environment that was held in Stockholm.
