The Earth is in crisis. On top of a global pandemic that has claimed millions of lives and wreaked economic havoc, the climate emergency is worsening as the world witnesses record-high temperatures, widespread drought, wildfires and increasingly unpredictable floods.

But there is still hope!

We invite you to join our global community in sharing stories of inspiration and ambition as part of our ‘Voices of the People’ video message campaign. A selection of the most engaging videos will be featured in a compilation video which will premiere at the closing plenary of GLF Climate. Some video messages will also be used in promotional material for the conference.
