Economy and Finance for a Just Future on a Thriving Planet

Stockholm+50

Economy and Finance for a Just Future on a Thriving Planet explores the role of economic metrics and the finance sector in a new Anthropocene context. In a series of dialogues, leading scientists, international organizations, investors, and other change-makers will deliberate on a new agenda for economics and finance, and define tangible pathways for action for our living planet and for prosperity for all. The deliberations will be presented in a synthesis report delivered to Stockholm+50 and contribute to its ambition in becoming the moment in time when the world shifted to a path towards a just and safe future. There will be a public launch of the report 1 June at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

The report will include chapters that each summarize key research insights and present new data and recommendations on how economies and the financial sector should help accelerate a step-change in ambitions towards sustainability and biosphere stewardship.

This initiative is commissioned by the Swedish Ministry of Environment as an independent input and contribution to Stockholm+50, and is led by the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, and the Stockholm Resilience Centre, at Stockholm University. The work builds on the Nobel Prize Summit 2021, Our Planet, Our Future, an international scientific initiative on sustainable development hosted by the Nobel Foundation.
