[External event] Invitation for the Stockholm +49 Summit: 20 - 21 October!!


We are delighted to invite you to participate in the Stockholm+49 Summit! On October 20 and 21, join world-renowned scientists, economists, lawyers, activists, and diplomats and learn more about possible legal and governance solutions to the environmental crisis. 2022 needs to be a game-changer for the environment. Throughout this year, governments will adopt a Declaration that will need to open a new pathway that can build hope for the next generations.

Background:

In 2022, world leaders will adopt a high-level declaration to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the world’s first major environmental summit: the Stockholm Conference. The Stockholm Conference marked a turning point for the environment. It laid down the basis of environmental law and led to the creation of the United Nations Environment Programme. 50 years later, Stockholm +50 needs to open a new window of hope for a constructive approach to the climate and biodiversity emergencies and lay down a plan to restore a well-functioning Earth System.

Much more is needed!

Stockholm+49 aims to start the countdown for civil society to contribute to a promising Declaration. Parallelly to the ongoing official negotiations, civil society will work on a draft Civil Society Declaration to help deliver a meaningful outcome in 2022. This Declaration needs to be a game-changer to boost the transition from a destructive economy to a regenerative and more equitable world.

That is why the Global Pact Coalition, Common Home of Humanity, Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future, 2022 Initiative Foundation, and Instituto Internacional de Derecho y Medio Ambiente- International Institute for Law and the Environment (IIDMA), in partnership with a growing network of organizations, are launching the

Stockholm+49 Summit. The Stockholm+49 Summit will kick off the discussion on what the 2022 Declaration should contain. We need to start acting now to strengthen environmental governance and law, to build a global framework that supports, coordinates, and

monitors the implementation. Are we a creative, innovative species or an evolutionary dead-end?
