movement-led parallel summits and activities that have been held at UN
conferences ever since.*
*About the Global Day of Action*
As UN convenes the Stockholm+50 conference on 2-3 June 2022
we invite and encourage you to plan an action – small or big – on the day
before, 1 June.
Under the rubric *Global day of action Stockholm + 50* we encourage actions
that call for the kinds of profound, transformative change that is needed
for global justice, health, peace, environment, and climate – the kinds of
change that governments and corporations are generally shying away from.
Whatever you might want to do, smaller or bigger; exhibits, street theatre,
meetings, demonstrations, debates, video, via traditional and/or social
media – *tell* us about your plans and *report* your actions to the
Stockholm +50 Coalition.
We’ll compile plans and provide ideas for actions on the Stockholm +50
Coalition website. We’ll also compile and show all the reported actions.
Tell us about your plans and report any activities to
globaldayjune1st at stockholmplus50.se.
