GLF Climate 2022: As it happened

Hosted on the sidelines of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and online, GLF Climate 2022: Frontiers of Change united 7,000 participants from 164 countries and rallied over 27 million people on social media around what humanity can still do to avoid the worsening impacts of the climate crisis.

Featuring 228 leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth and government leaders, and 96 incredible partner organizations, the second edition of GLF Climate called for a just transition to a stewardship economy that puts people and nature first.

Across 43 plenaries, expert sessions, launches, virtual tours, dialogues, networking sessions, and inspirational talks, GLF Climate 2022 explored ways to take control of our own fate through collective action, behavior change and the widespread adoption of nature- and land-based solutions.
