Peatlands:
The climate solution
we forgot champion!

Explore what happened at GLF Peatlands 2024

Peatlands may look ordinary, but they’re hiding a powerful secret – these unassuming areas are the ultimate carbon sinks, pulling carbon from the air as natural purifiers.

What if we could build a global movement
to harness this power?

That’s exactly what we aimed to do at GLF Peatlands 2024 Hybrid Conference, when 1,300 experts gathered in Bonn, Germany, and online, and 433,000 more joined the conversation from across the globe.

Explore inspiring stories and powerful insights shedding light on the state of peatlands and their future!

4 TAKEAWAYS

  1. Improving capacity for stakeholder collaboration is critical to strengthen landscape management initiatives such as the PEATS Impact Project.
  2. Numbers speak volumes. Gathering data on peatland degradation can prompt governments and stakeholders to prioritize conservation.

Let’s do what we can to rebuild a world in which peatlands are not forgotten but recognized and valued for everything they hold.

  1. Mapping is key to our understanding of peatlands. Tools such as the Global Peatlands Assessment can catalyze further restoration work.
