On 1 June 2022, the day before the UN Stockholm+50 International Meeting, representatives of many faith traditions in the Swedish Interfaith Council gathered in Mynttorget Square across the bridge from the Parliament building to offer Interfaith Prayers for the success of Stockholm+50. Each representative offered a prayer or reflection in their own tradition, demonstrating the unity of religions faced with the environmental challenges addressed at Stockholm+50.
