UNEP: The first 40 years - A Narrative by Stanley Johnson

United Nations Environment Programme (2012)

For many of those who were lucky enough to be there, the first United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, held in Stockholm, Sweden, from 5-16 June 1972 was truly memorable. Stockholm in high summer is a magical place, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was a wonderfully appropriate setting for what would turn out to be a transforming event not just for the United Nations and its system of agencies, but for the world as a whole.
