: The United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (also known as the Stockholm Conference) was an international conference convened under United Nations auspices held in Stockholm, Sweden from June 5-16, 1972. It was the UN’s first major conference on international environmental issues, and marked a turning point in the development of international environmental politics.

It modified the classical approach from being just informative to guiding and motivating the global community in being responsible towards the environment. It resulted into two things:

26 Principles– It gave 26 principles concerning the environment and development. These included human rights, natural resources, wildlife and environment education to name a few.
