Plenary: A holistic and landscape view on change

New York

*A portion of this plenary session will occur in Spanish. Simultaneous translation will be provided.

Since 2013, over 25,000 stakeholders from more than 3,000 organizations and 110 countries have engaged with the GLF in person and online, with stakeholders from community and indigenous peoples’ organizations, finance, civil society, government, media and youth. The GLF Global Community of Practice is founded on four principles: connecting, sharing, learning and acting. Our vision considers people first and recognizes that people acting together drive change.

The Global Landscapes Forum is a place where local stakeholders can influence action, pathways and policies; where international organizations and the private sector can learn from other sectors; and where CEOs, community leaders, communicators and technologists can collectively act. Over the next five years, with core funding from the German government and with the support of strategic partners, the GLF will grow, enrich the discussion, reach a larger audience than ever before, and place communities at the center of the conversation.

The second plenary of the Global Landscape Forum will present a challenging and holistic view on how we can spark action and change for sustainable landscapes. This plenary will present new speakers with different views on the world and how we can create change. The plenary will hear from leaders from government, international organizations and a spiritual thought leader on global wellbeing. This GLF plenary will challenge conventional wisdom on how we can create meaningful impact.
