To ensure that strong messages and concrete recommendations will be presented in the three Stockholm+50 Leadership Dialogues, Informal Working Groups were established for each of the three themes to guide the work leading up to the international meeting. This process aimed to reinforce the bottom-up co-creation processes for the Leadership Dialogues.
Engagement in the Informal Working Groups
The Informal Working Groups consisted of representatives from relevant Member States, UN agencies, as well as relevant representatives from stakeholder groups, including youth, business and industry, Indigenous Peoples, local authorities, NGOs, the scientific and technological community, women, and faith-based groups. The participants were expected to have expertise and/or experience in the respective themes and to liaise with their peers and constituents to provide input and feedback to the working groups.
