The Stockholm Memorandum

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011 | Environment Update

In mid May brilliant people met in Stockholm during the 3rd Nobel Laureate Symposium on Global Sustainability. More than twenty Nobel Laureates, a number of leading policy makers and some of the world’s most renowned thinkers and experts on global sustainability concluded that we have entered a new era – the Anthropocene. Humanity is completely dominating the planet and pressing its ultimate boundaries. The Stockholm Memorandum is a new vision for global sustainability and also include means of how to achieve it. It has been handed to the UN High Level Panel on global sustainability that is arranging the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro (Rio +20).
