About the event
To commemorate this important occasion, an international meeting under the theme “Stockholm+50: A healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity” will be held on 2-3 June 2022. The meeting aims to emphasize the importance of a renewed multilateralism fit for the 21st century and in tackling the triple planetary crises of – climate, nature loss, and pollution. It will also act as a springboard to accelerate the implementation of the UN Decade of Action, the Paris Agreement, post-2020 global Biodiversity Frameworks, as well as sustainable and equitable post-COVID-19 recovery plans.
We would like to invite you to participate in the North America Regional Multi-stakeholder Consultation for Stockholm+50 (in conjunction with the European region) that will take place virtually on 5 May 2022, at 8:00 – 9:30 AM EST. Attached, you will find the agenda and here is the guidance note which includes the framing questions. Please feel free to share this invitation with any interested colleagues.
This regional consultation is one of the multiple Regional Multi-Stakeholder Consultation Meetings that UNEP is hosting, with the support of the Global Opportunities for Sustainable Development Goals (GO4SDGs), to give voice to and facilitate engagement of as many stakeholders as possible. The consultations aim to ensure a bottom-up mapping of key initiatives and actions needed for sustainable development by fostering new change pathways across generations, accelerating commitments, and forward-looking systemic actions, including through meaningful participation of youth, women, and Indigenous people, among others.
