GLF Glasgow 2020-2030

Join thousands at GLF Glasgow to make breakthroughs on the 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 of delegates will gather to forge a sustainable path to 2030. GLF Glasgow will unpack critical challenges across five topics: restoration, finance, rights, food and livelihoods and measuring progress 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 solutions to restore the earth.

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.

"There is a sheer, a huge global deficit today of positive incentives in the land use sector. We have a carrot crisis on our hands. And a positive benefit can be liberating a farmer from bureaucracy and making it easier to access credit so it takes one month instead of eight."

Daniel Nepstad
President and Founder, Earth Innovation Institute

"Merging the vision of sustainability – a proactive assignment – with the reactive practice to climate change needs to be a continuous exercise. And it is at the landscape level where theory becomes practice, where this integration happens."

Yolanda Navarro Kakabadse
President of WWF International

"I see the focus of the Global Landscapes Forum as being highly relevant to the global effort to tackle climate change and to move towards sustainable development."

Helen Clark
Former Aotearoa New Zealand Prime Minister
