EPL launches a new section – Stockholm+50 and Beyond – that will include content from experts in advance of UNEP's milestone event in 2022, commemorating the 50 years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (UNCHE).
Commemorating 50 years since the environment first took center stage, "Stockholm+50: A healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity" was an international meeting convened by the United Nations General Assembly that was held in Stockholm, Sweden from 2–3 June 2022 (discover more in the press release here or click visual below to visit the UNEP website).
In advance of the UNEP event, our journal launched a new section – Road to Stockholm+50 and Beyond – to seed the ideas of topics covered at the conference, written by invited experts from global experts. These contributions will be published in EPL starting from Volume 51, Issue 6 (2021) and continuing through to Volume 52, Issue 4 (2022).
All content is curated by EPL's Editor-in-Chief Bharat H. Desai, PhD, which he first diccussed in the editorial of Volume 51, Issue 5: "The forthcoming 50th year milestone of UNCHE and UNEP presents an opportunity for EPL to probe the global environmental regulatory approaches, as well as to strive for ‘envisioning the future’. The EPL Special Section in the forthcoming issues until Volume 52, Issue 3/4 (2022) will carry some cutting-edge ideational reflections on the predicament we face today."
