The 2022 Forum is jointly organised by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute and the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and will be held in a hybrid format, with sessions held online and in person at Münchenbryggeriet, Stockholm.
This year’s Forum will explore ways to enable an environment of peace in the face of converging crises. Against the backdrop of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, the Forum will discuss long-term global challenges in the midst of the immediate security crisis. What needs to change within the economy, institutions, governments, organizations, companies and societies to sustain the natural environment, biodiversity and human progress while sustaining peace and security according to the goals set out in Agenda 2030?
