June 1, 2022
On June 1, 2022 the world’s leading environmental scientists—including Heinz Award winners Gretchen Daily (2010), Paul Anastas (2006), and James Balog (2010)—joined together to discuss how to tackle the planetary crises, answer questions, and share solutions to climate change, protecting biodiversity, and preventing pollution.
This event, Guided by Science: Sustainability Champions on How to Tackle the Planetary Crises, aired on June 1, the day before the start of Stockholm+50, a crucial meeting to celebrate 50 years of global environmental action on June 2-3. The Stockholm+50 acts as a springboard to accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Agreement on climate change, the Global Biodiversity Framework, and other essential sustainability goals.
