Associated Events

Associated Events served a key complementary role to the Stockholm+50 international meeting. These independently organized events provided a platform for diverse stakeholders to convene Stockholm+50-related events in association with the international meeting itself. Unlike Side Events, Associated Events did not physically take place at the official Stockholmsmässan venue in Sweden – they were physical, virtual or hybrid and took place anywhere in the world. In doing so, additional valuable ideas from diverse voices and contexts were showcased on a global stage.

Submission and application process

Submissions now closed: Associated Event organizers were invited to complete an Associated Event submission form by 15 May 2022. Approved Events will be featured in the Stockholm+50 Associated Events calendar.

Each submission was reviewed by the Stockholm+50 coordination team. The review process focused on relevance of the event to the overall theme of Stockholm+50 and its three Leadership Dialogues. The coordination team endeavoured to provide a decision to prospective hosts within one week of submission via email. 


Associated Events that were approved were featured in the Stockholm+50 events calendar and had the right to use the official Stockholm+50 Associated Event logo to promote their event. 


Applicants were not permitted to use the term “Stockholm+50” in the title of their event, to avoid confusion between formal Stockholm+50 proceedings. Any additional support (technical support, promotion, logistics, travel, etc.) was solely the responsibility of event organizers. Please note that an event with an attendance fee or an attendee financial component did not qualify.
