Stockholm +50 event logo

This PAGE official side-event focused on co-creating solutions for urgently needed economic and finance transformation at a scale for addressing sustainability and inequality challenges.

Linear and fossil-based economic and finance models of the past are no-longer an option in a world of increasing planetary crisis, climate risks, growing socioeconomic uncertainties, inequalities and poverty. The PAGE high-level event at Stockholm+50 revisited economics and finance to identify solutions for accelerating the implementation of the SDGs by tackling the Triple Planetary Crisis of climate change, nature loss and pollution, in tandem with the socioeconomic crisis of inequalities, job loss and stagnated growth.

The side-event also saw the PAGE community welcome Cambodia and Rwanda as the newest members of the partnership. PAGE currently supports 22 countries in their efforts towards Inclusive Green Economic Transformation.
