In the 2022 letter, the focus is consumption and its impact: Stockholm+50

It has been 50 years since the first meeting held in the Swedish capital when the world initially confronted the idea that development needs to be environmentally sustainable.

 The conference, Stockholm+50 which was held on Thursday and Friday saw the world gathering to raise awareness to phase out fossil fuel and direct sustainable development. 

Scientists, researchers and activists from around the world gathered to support developing nations in the transition to clean energy.

In the 2022 letter, the focus is consumption and its impact: “We humans are ultimately responsible for the crisis, but to varying degrees: a minority are responsible for a majority of the damage, while those least responsible are hit hardest by the impacts. This letter is an urgent call to our global Neighbors, to acknowledge the crisis, make personal and collective commitments in line with differences in privilege and responsibility, and work towards transformative change”.

The conference was graced by the presence of our very own Indian environmentalists and climate activists. They were very vocal all throughout the conference.

This conference has no negotiations so it’s not about arguments,” said Arunabha Ghosh, founder and CEO of New Delhi based Council on Energy, Environment and Water (CEEW) from Stockholm.

An environmental activist from Delhi, Bhavreen Khandari, who is in Stockholm to attend the conference said, “We, parents ask on the 50th anniversary of the Stockholm conference, that it must stand differently – not to state the problem but to show the way ahead. With true intent and transformative action now, we won’t need a Stockholm+100,”
