Breaking the Ice and Melting the Poles- Talking Climate

    We can’t take action on climate change unless we talk about it- so how can we get people talking about something they don’t even want to think about! And then how do we get people who hate each other to work together?

    George Marshall is one of Europe’s leading specialists in climate change communications. He is the founder of Climate Outreach which advises the UN, IPCC, World bank, most major green groups and governments around the world. He has over 30 years experience at all levels of environmental campaigning and is the author of the first book to explore the psychology of climate change: Don’t Even Think About It: Why our Brains are Wired to Ignore Climate Change

    Organizations are welcome and encourage to host and facilitate side meeting before and during the GLF event, and then bring their results and recommendations to the Forum. A GLF secretariat will be on hand to identify and reserve appropriate Bonn venues. Webinars, engaging social media campaigns, competitions and pre-event discussions will generate momentum and interest in key issue areas to ensure that the GLF accelerates long-term action for sustainable landscapes.

    The GLF will have a small secretariat in Bonn, Germany to coordinate all of the above, operated by CIFOR.
