GLF Glasgow: Reimagine the Future of Food and Livelihoods
Join thousands at GLF Glasgow to make breakthroughs on the food and livelihood issues that impact ecosystems, biodiversity, and human wellbeing. The event will feature true champions of change: youth and Indigenous activists, tech innovators, industry leaders, government officials, researchers, international organizations and NGOs.
On 14 – 15 November, thousands will gather to re-imagine a new future for how we eat, consume, and live. GLF Glasgow will unpack critical challenges in the global food system and highlight innovative solutions for true sustainability. Held alongside the UN Climate Change Conference, the event will bring sustainable landscapes to the fore while covering key topics such as regenerative agriculture, value chains, biodiversity conservation, ecosystem restoration, global consumption and lifestyles, nutrition and food security, and pathways for economic inclusion.
At this time of great uncertainty for our climate and the world itself, leaders and change-makers from Indigenous and local communities, financial institutions, businesses, youth groups, activists, policymakers and heads of state must stand united to connect, learn and share their ideas on food systems that support the health and safely of both human and nature while avoiding food waste, deforestation or soil degradation.

WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
WHY SHOULD YOU COME?
Climate change is being felt in every part of the world, particularly in developing nations. The effects of climate change make communities and people vulnerable to food and nutrition insecurity and undermines livelihood and development prospects. At the same time the climate change emergency forces us rethink the way we produce and consume food and offers an unprecedented opportunity to rethink, and rebuild our entire food systems as well as our relationship to nature.
This is your chance to meet with people of all ages who are working on the ground, to swap ideas and gain insights into successful, sustainable landscape restoration. Ask the finance experts questions about available, patient, long-term funding to tap into and how to make this work for your project.
Bring questions you have been saving; chances are good that at this event, you’ll meet the right people who can give you answers – on tenure, financing, supply chains, markets, and financing. Find out from successful restoration projects about the factors that helped their projects succeed – and what to avoid.
