In 1972, Olof Palme invited the world to Stockholm and the first international environmental conference, where he became one of the first to use the word ecocide. Half a century later we find ourselves in a global ecological crisis. Stockholm+50 desperately needs to become as significant in environmental history as the Stockholm conference, and thus ecocide as the next international crime needs to be at the center of discussion. We believe the voice of youth will put it there! Come and learn more about this hopeful possibility.
”The air we breathe is not the property of any one nation – we share it. … In the field of human environment there is no individual future, neither for humans nor for nations. Our future is common. We must share it together. We must shape it together” Olof Palme at the Stockholm conference 1972
