Global Landscapes Forum New York 2019: As it happened

On 28 September 2019, more than 400 people from 46 countries came together at the United Nations Headquarters in New York for the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) event, Restore the Earth. Coming at the close of a historic Climate Week, in which cities around the world were rocked by climate strikes and policy makers acknowledging the urgency of the climate crisis, GLF’s event was marked by energy, enthusiasm, anger with the status quo and obligation to change it. The GLF stands at the forefront of the recently-announced UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. Having facilitated many of the conversations that led to the Decade’s adoption by the UN General Assembly, GLF New York represented the most comprehensive exploration to date of the vast potential and practical implications of ecosystem restoration. The GLF New York 2019 Digital Edition was streamed live to over 9,800 people from 138 countries and #GLFNYC2019 gained 175 million impressions on social media.
