Did you forget this climate solution?

26 Apr 2024

What if we told you that there’s a silent hero who could save us from the climate crisis? That hero isn’t a person, but a landscape. Peatlands may look ordinary, but they’re hiding a powerful secret – these unassuming areas are the ultimate carbon sinks, pulling carbon from the air like natural purifiers. What if we could build a global movement to harness this power? That’s exactly what we’re aiming to do at our first major event of the year: GLF Peatlands 2024.

What can we do in a 1.5-degree world?

22 Jan 2024

Happy New Year from all of us at the GLF! Last month, while all eyes were on the COP28 climate summit in Dubai, scientists at the U.K. Met Office issued a stark warning that went largely unnoticed: for the first time ever, global heating could reach 1.5 degrees Celsius this year.

What did we accomplish at the world’s biggest climate event?

14 Dec 2023

COP28 is a wrap. What happens now? For the first time ever, countries have agreed a deal to “transition away” from fossil fuels – but without committing to phase them out or phase them down. Small island states and climate advocates have pointed out numerous “loopholes” in the text that could enable continued fossil fuel expansion and reliance on controversial technologies like carbon capture and storage. In this newsletter, we bring you in-depth coverage and analysis from the world’s biggest climate event of 2023. Plus, stay tuned for highlights from our 10th anniversary at the end of the year, with many more updates to come in January!
