50 years of environmental policy
Side event at Stockholm+50: 3 June 2022
9:00 to 10:15 | Room 3
Stakeholder Forum and FoRUM Norway held an in-person Side Event at Stockholm+50. Watch the replay on FoRUM’s Facebook page.
Original event description: At Stockholm+50 in June, we will host a side event where a variety of speakers (scientists) involved in the Legacy themes of UNEP (governance, law, MEAs, education, civil society input, environmental rights, etc.) will give an overview of 50 years of environmental policies and law. This is based on a series of webinars we organised on these 7 different topics. We will also launch the ‘People’s Environmental Narrative’ (see above), which compiles the outcomes of different Stockholm+50 related events including 2 important online events engaging with civil society on these Legacy Themes.
