A Global Forum to Kick-start the New Phase of SCP Actions

The Secretariat of the One Planet Network Secretariat would like to thank everyone who contributed to making the first annual One Planet Network Forum a success. 

The OPN is only as strong as the people who make it up, and it was thrilling to see such enthusiastic representation from across governments, civil society, the private sector, scientific organisations, youth representatives and more.

All these stakeholders gathered over the two day forum to discuss real action for progress on sustainable consumption and consumption efforts around the world. Overcoming the challenges which we collectively face will not be easy, and it was inspring to see so many of you come together to plan a better, more innovative, and more impactful way forward.

Whether you were with us in Stockholm or following online, we would like to express our deepest gratitude, and hope to work with all of you moving forward for a better future on a healthy planet.

The AGENDA will give you access to all of the recorded sessions of the Forum

Why have a global forum on SCP?

SCP is an enabler of sustainable development

The economic systems we rely on for our prosperity and well being are not fit for purpose.  Reversing this trend to achieve the objectives of the Agenda 2030 requires  equitable changes to our economies supported by a global movement on sustainable consumption and production that drives post-pandemic recovery efforts while leaving no one behind.

SCP is a driver of recovery, to build a better future on a healthy planet

The international community is calling for peace, stability, and sustainable recovery for all. The right circumstances exist for policymakers to recalibrate priorities and reshape supply, production systems and consumption patterns to create economies and societies that are fairer, more inclusive and sustainable.

There is a Momentum for a new approach to SCP

After nearly a decade of bringing communities together and implementing actions, the One Planet Network has identified solutions, tools and strategies that can help transform in concrete ways how we consume natural resources while also positively contributing to other challenges such as poverty, a lack of decent jobs, hunger, waste and pollution, climate change and degradation of ecosystems.
