Exploring human-nature futures


About the 2023 Landscape Leadership Workshop

On 9 and 10 October, the 2023 Landscape Leadership Workshop was held in Nairobi, Kenya, to set the scene for the GLF Nairobi 2023 Hybrid Conference: A New Vision for Earth. Co-designed by the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF), the Youth in Landscapes Initiative (YIL), and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), the workshop brought together 45 brilliant young minds from Africa and around the world selected from over 700 applicants to drive impactful and transformative change.

Together, we brainstormed out of the box to find landscape solutions to the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, social injustices and other major challenges. We held hands while sharing our feelings about the world. We harnessed the power of art to challenge dominant narratives. We will forever cherish the memories we made, and we will continue to nourish these new relationships with care.


Exploring human-nature futures


This presentation by The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), explores the importance of considering the future and understanding the factors that shape it. It emphasizes the distinction between forecasting and foresight, urging the audience to go beyond predicting outcomes and instead focus on comprehending how change unfolds. The presentation advocates for foresight as a capacity to anticipate and plan for various possible futures, enabling better decision-making in the present.

Explore collaborative governance through futures thinking—a participative approach shaping actions and decisions. This inclusive process values diverse worldviews, empowering stakeholders, fostering innovation, stimulating social learning, managing conflicts, and enhancing governance with varied knowledge types. Open to everyone, futures literacy becomes a tool for collective influence.
