Do you know of anyone taking action to help achieve the sustainable future we keep talking about? Do you know a landscape hero? Tell us their story and bring to light the work of individuals, communities and organizations surpassing the hurdles towards sustainable landscapes and solving some of the environment’s most critical problems. Small or big, their ideas and projects are the fuel we need to boost the momentum for environmental action.
Across the world there are many unsung heroes, big or small, who take a stand for their landscapes and the environment. They might be restoring forests or finding new ways to secure food and improve nutrition; they might dedicate their everyday work to clean energy, reducing carbon emissions or developing alternatives to polluting materials; they might be scaling-up recycling schemes, empowering communities, protecting wildlife or cleaning up the oceans. Show us what are they doing and how are they changing the world for the better.
Send us a short story and a photo. You may also share a video and relevant links of your landscape hero’s work and we’ll put the most inspiring ones on the world’s radar, for a quarter billion people to see and vote on. Based on popular votes and the final input of the GLF knowledge committee, we will select the most compelling stories to showcase and highlight extensively online with a possible to chance to be showcased in Bonn 2018.
Why this matters?
This year for GLF Bonn 2018, we are focusing on how to move from commitments on paper to actions that bring a visible, positive change in the landscape and in people’s lives. And you can help us show global leaders in government and finance that action is happening at every level across the world, that solutions are out there and that scaling them up is not only critical, but possible.
