GLF AMAZONIA DIGITAL CONFERENCE:
THE TIPPING POINT
*Free for residents of countries in Latin America & Caribbean
THE TIPPING POINT
This digital conference has been made possible through the generous support of:
The Amazon Biome is poised on the brink of an irreversible tipping point.
The biome is one of the most culturally and biologically diverse regions on Earth: it’s home to more than 30 million people, around 410 ethnic groups, and over a tenth of the planet’s known biodiversity, including many endemic and endangered species.
But 40% of the Amazon Biome is close to losing its function as water-generating rainforest – a catastrophe for human well-being and planetary health. We can change this trajectory if we work together and act now.
Uniting to save the world’s mightiest tropical forest
Join us online on September 21-23 for GLF Amazonia: the largest-ever global conference on the Amazon Biome.
The event will bring together new and traditional knowledge and perspectives from key actors across the biome, to explore how we can preserve and restore the biological and cultural diversity of the world’s mightiest humid tropical forest.
We will leverage the latest evidence, innovation and business cases; convene partnerships; generate public support; and help build propositions to balance competing land-use demands between forestry, agriculture and restoration.
The conference will also include a three-day film festival and a multimedia cultural gallery, which will feature documentaries, art, photos, music and stories from across the region – and the people who create them.
An open invitation
With coverage in English, Portuguese and Spanish, GLF Amazonia is open to attendees from all walks of life, including scientists, policymakers, activists, youth, investors, restoration practitioners, community and Indigenous groups, civil society organizations, media and more.
GLF Amazonia is free for everyone in Latin America and the Caribbean, and only 10-15 Euros for those living outside the region. Sign up to help secure a sustainable future for the Amazon Biome!
What's on the agenda?
Understand the business case for restoration, and establish recommendations for scaling nature-based value chains.
Encourage new commitments to upscale cross-sectoral land-use planning in the Amazonian Biome, and strengthen governance mechanisms that protect the rights of local actors.

Why is this conference important?
40 percent of the Amazon nears the tipping point of irreversibly losing its function as water generating rainforest – a catastrophe for human wellbeing and planetary health that can still be prevented if the world acts now.

What will you do at GLF Amazonia?
GLF Amazonia will build on lessons learned from the creation and management of protected areas, Indigenous reserves and community forests. The territories within the Amazon require an integrated, transboundary and rights-based approach to catalyzing restoration and conservation efforts. Space must be created for Indigenous groups, local communities and institutions to connect to global processes and technologies, in order to combine new innovations and old practices, balance development and conservation, and embed inclusive, equitable and sustainable bio economies within Amazonian landscapes.
