Stockholm+50 will take place on June 2 and 3: an international environmental meeting convened by the United Nations General Assembly. FairClimateFund will speak at an event organized by the Foundation Development and Climate Alliance and the UNFCCC.

Stockholm+50 takes place fifty years after the 1972 UN Conference on the Human Environment. The event will help leaders take urgent action needed for a better future and a healthy planet.

“Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity”

On the first day, the Foundation Development and Climate Alliance, together with the UNFCCC, will organize the accompanying event Getting to Zero: The Potential of Carbon Markets to Support Development and Climate Action.

The event will demonstrate how avoiding and reducing greenhouse gas emissions can be successfully combined with offsetting.
