The science is clear: decisive and bold action is urgently needed. In this event, leading experts debate recommendations put forward in the report Stockholm+50: Unlocking a Better Future. The report, launched by CEEW and SEI ahead of the Stockholm+50 international meeting, provided a scientific basis to the meeting and proposed actions leaders can take now for systemic change to accelerate.

Join us in a conversation about keys to change and how the conditions for delivering on commitments made for a better future must improve.
