Stockholm+50: unlocking a better future

This report, in collaboration with Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), is an independent scientific report for the UN international meeting, ‘Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity’. Based on a synthesis of scientific evidence and ideas, it identifies concrete actions under three broad shifts: redefining the relationship between humans and nature; ensuring lasting prosperity for all; and investing in a better future. The report analyses the barriers to change and underlines the ways to unlock progress by improving coherence, accountability, solidarity and a renewed multilateralism. It highlights that these shifts require the involvement of multiple actors – including governments, multilateral institutions, private sector and individuals – and emphasises on reforming the global governance landscape. It makes recommendations for reform and new thinking on complex issues of finance, technology, lifestyles and others, all of which need bold action for a better future.
