Meet the world-changing women coming to GLF Bonn 2018

19 Nov 2018

What grassroots efforts have effectively helped indigenous communities in Asia Pacific? How is President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement affecting climate finance? Can phone apps ‘green’ food supply chains in Nigeria? What is the Republic of Congo doing to protect the world’s largest swath of tropical peatlands?

This year at GLF Bonn 2018, world-changing women from five continents driving forward the fields of social equity, finance, ecology, sustainable business, landscape protection and management, policy and more are taking to the stage, and the answers to these questions is only the tip of the iceberg of what they have to share.

Two women ministers alongside business entrepreneurs, rights advocates, organizational heads and young landscape leaders of the future will discuss not only their knowledge and their expertise, but also their challenges and ideas, their motivations and experiences, and their visions for a more sustainable and equitable world.
