The Government of Sweden will host the Stockholm+50 conference, convened by the United Nations General Assembly, from June 2-3, 2022. The conference will commemorate the 1972 UN Conference on the Environment and celebrate 50 years of environmental action on climate, nature, and pollution. The event is intended as a "springboard" to accelerate implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda.
Ahead of Stockholm+50, the University Alliance Stockholm Trio - which includes Karolinska Institute, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and Stockholm University - together with the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), will host a one-day conference: Sustainable planet, sustainable health - how science-based solutions can drive transformative change. Karin Bäckstrand, Principal Investigator of the Transformative Partnerships 2030 project and Professor of Environmental Social Science at Stockholm University, is helping to organize the event, and project team members will be presenting and in attendance.
The conference will take place on June 1 in Stockholm at the joint SU-KTH Albano Campus and online. This hybrid event offers the opportunity for both in-person and online attendance, with seating for up to 600 people depending on pandemic-related restrictions. Registration information will be made available closer to the date of the event, which we will share on this news blog.
Sustainable planet, sustainable health will focus on how academics and scientists can further develop capacities to support transformations for sustainable health for people and the planet. More details about the theme are available from Stockholm University.
