WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

ZIMBABWE AT STOCKHOLM +50
As the threat of earths triple planetary crisis - climate, nature, and pollution - constantly grows more urgent, world leaders gathered to accelerate the implementation of environmental-, climate- and biodiversity- related policy. Stockholm +50, a crucial international environmental meeting took place on the 2nd and 3rd of June 2022 in Sweden and sought to commemorate the 1972 Stockholm United Nations Conference on the Environment and celebrate 50 years of global environmental action. The meeting followed months of national and regional consultations around the world, including in Zimbabwe.
“Stockholm +50 was a pivotal moment to translate momentum into serious action” said Natalie Mangondo, Finance Youth Fellow with the UNFCCC Climate Champions Team, who represented Zimbabwe’s youth at numerous events and panels at the international conference in Stockholm. She continued, “As a young person from one of the most climate vulnerable countries, my hope was that this event would showcase what radical collaboration between science, policy, and business can achieve if replicated and scaled”.
