1 June – People’s Forum
The NCP has programmed a small Consultation of international law and policy experts being convened on June 1, 2022, in Stockholm, Sweden, on the eve of the United Nations Stockholm+50 Meeting.
This meeting will take place at the Nobis Hotel and the participation will be just by invitation.
This event is a collaboration between the UN-Mandated University for Peace, the Normandy Chair for Peace and the International Council of Environmental Law.
The two goals of our participation in Stockholm+50 are:
- To see language around peace or conflict sensitivity in any final summary document or report of the event.
- To generate a list of opportunities and leads for collaboration within the environmental sector that can be used by our field in future work.
