Stockholm+50 | Sustainable Living within 1.5 degrees: innovative pathways to live better and lighter
June 2, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm UTC+2
At the heart of the sustainability transition are the aspirations of people to live in a better future. What gets lost between discussions on technology and economic growth are opportunities for lifestyle changes that emphasize interconnections between people and a healthy planet, a theme underscored by Stockholm+50. Evidence shows that all economies will have to adjust lifestyles and consumption levels to live below a 1.5-degree global rise in temperature, while attending to inequality and supporting wellbeing. In essence we need to re-think how we eat, move, live and choose to spend our time and resources. Moreover, we need to re-design the systems (infrastructure, policy, markets, technology, etc.) that support our current ways of living.
This event, hosted by Hot or Cool Institute and the Go4SDGs initiative, will explore how our future lifestyles need to change and pathways to future sustainable living.
Panelists will outline ongoing efforts and help concretely reimagine less consumptive but highly fulfilling lifestyles – mapping needed value shifts, policies to support needed interventions, innovation, infrastructure, new business models and investment priorities. It will build on regional consultations; policy approaches; and amplify messages to regenerate, rebalance and restore our relationship with nature.
