Date: 2nd June

Time: 4:30pm Stockholm Time

There is unequivocal agreement that COVID-19’s impact has been asymmetric, both within and across countries, disproportionately affecting low-income households, migrants, informal workers and women. While the crisis has had uneven impacts, the responses, too, have been uneven and the situation is exacerbated by the immense fluidity in supply chains, causing shortages , raising prices and putting greater burden on the poor and vulnerable. An urgent shift is therefore required to enhance community stewardship driven by nature-based solutions to build forward better into a world that is healthy and equitable for people and planet.

This event will bring together an intergenerational and interfaith panel of speakers, with multidisciplinary experience in the context of building resilience for people and planet, to discuss how we can build forward better and more equal through community stewardship driven by nature-based solutions, and a roadmap of actions needed to facilitate the same.


This event is most relevant to Theme 2 of Stockholm+50: Achieving a sustainable and inclusive recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has proven the importance of multilateralism and community stewardship that takes into account the need for a healthy society and healthy planet in a post-COVID-19 world, with a special focus on the most vulnerable communities. Our event seeks to bring to the fore how we can achieve a sustainable and inclusive recovery from the pandemic through community stewardship driven by nature-based solutions.
