The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) entered a new era in December 2017, with the launch of the first in a series of summits to be held over the next five years in Bonn, Germany. The first of these gatherings was held from 19-20 December at the World Conference Center in Bonn.
The GLF Bonn brought together 1,026 diverse participants from 104 countries – 49% female, 51% male and 28% youth – from various sectors, regions and backgrounds. More than 70,000 additional participants joined virtually via livestream and social media channels.
The platform explored key challenges and opportunities for fostering sustainable landscapes going forth. Participants echoed that more scientific research is needed to produce knowledge for informed decision-making and agreed that the GLF can deliver this essential knowledge-convening role.
The GLF Donor & Partner Event report summarizes the two-day global gathering, its key achievements, its traditional and social media outreach and impact, and its plans moving forward.
