What is the Global Landscapes Forum?

The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) is a movement that puts communities first in addressing landscape-level issues. With science and traditional knowledge at the core, GLF outreach, events and projects are designed not only to spark dialogue, but also follow-through to impact in addressing some of the most complex and multi-stakeholder problems facing our earth and our communities.

Sustainable landscapes are essential for the future we want: for food, livelihoods, health, renewable materials, energy, biodiversity, business development, trade, climate regulation and water. Recognizing this complexity – the diversity of landscape realities – and the need for holistic approaches, the GLF is founded on four principles, aiming to engage 1 billion people: connecting, sharing, learning and acting.

We are now the world’s largest science-led platform on sustainable land use. To date, we have connected 3,900 organizations and 150,000 participants to our gatherings in Warsaw, Lima, London, Paris, Marrakech, Jakarta, Bonn, Washington D.C. and Nairobi – and reached over 231.5 million from more than 148 countries.
