The Leadership Dialogues "are expected to contribute to the outcome of Stockholm+50 by yielding clear and concrete recommendations and messages for action at all levels, mobilizing the global community behind strengthened cooperation and accelerated innovative action". There will be three LDs, each presided two Co-chairs. The co-hosts of Stockholm+50 selected one co-chair from a developing country and one from a developed country.
The three themes of the LDs were agreed on the resolution 75/326 of the United Nations General Assembly.
The LDs highlight the relevance of stakeholders, as they include the voices of women, youth, older persons, persons with disabilities, Indigenous Peoples and local communities, all invited to contribute to the discussions.
