Stockholm +50

It’s time for bold choices. It’s time for urgent action. It’s time for a better future on a healthy planet.

On 2 and 3 June 2022, a crucial international environmental meeting will be held in Stockholm, Sweden and GBM will be there. 

Anchored in the Decade of Action, under the theme “Stockholm+50: a healthy planet for the prosperity of all – our responsibility, our opportunity,” this high-level meeting will follow months of consultations and discussions with individuals, communities, organizations and governments around the world.

Just like the one-day preparatory meeting held at United Nations Headquarters in New York on 28 March 2022, our deputy Claudia Moray will be attending this expected international meeting.

It will commemorate the 50 years since the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, which made the environment a pressing global issue for the first time. The United Nations Environment Programme was created as a result of the conference. 

Now, 50 years after that Stockholm meeting, the world faces a triple planetary crisis of climate change, pollution and waste, nature, and biodiversity loss, as well as other planetary ills that are affecting current and future prosperity and wellbeing. An unhealthy planet threatens human health, prosperity, equality, and peace – as the world has seen only too clearly in COVID-19. It also threatens the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The meeting will comprise an opening segment, four plenary meetings and three leadership dialogues, and a closing segment.

Daniel Salvucci, Managing Partner at Draper Cygnus provides his analysis of the venture capital industry context and deep tech startups in the region. He highlights the low investment in deep tech companies and the great potential for talent. Investment funds like Draper Cygnus are interested in disruptive ventures that go way beyond what is socially accepted as “the latest”. They are companies that are in industries impacted by disruptive technologies that drive drastic changes and impose the creation of new business models. Developing those changes that are driven by the demand of society are not always possible in certain industries and at the same time require a lot of capital.
