May 31: Ecocide law – the Stockholm legacy

Participate digitally in Stockholm+50 Backdoor!

May 31st, 16.30-18 CET online

At the Stockholm Conference in 1972, Olof Palme was one of the first world leaders to use the word ecocide to denote mass destruction of the environment. Fifty years on, ecocide is still ongoing and a legal framework to protect the Earth is urgent. Join us at Stockholm+50 Backdoor to celebrate the legacy from 1972 and to push for action for the 50 years ahead – our own legacy.
