From 11–12 November 2021, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) gathered on the sidelines of the annual United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) for the GLF Climate 2022 Hybrid Conference: Frontiers of Change.
Held in Sharm El-Sheikh and online, the event brought together over 7,000 people from 164 countries and rallied over 27 million people on social media around what humanity can still do to avoid the worsening impacts of the climate crisis.
Featuring 228 leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth and government leaders, and 96 incredible partner organizations, the second edition of GLF Climate called for a just transition to a stewardship economy that puts people and nature first.
The event explored ways to take control of our own fate through collective action, behavioral change, and the widespread adoption of locally led and co-created land-based solutions.
A compilation of insight from all those involved, this Outcome Statement summarizes the conference’s key messages and contains quotes from across 43 plenaries, expert panels, launches, virtual tours, dialogues, networking sessions, and inspirational talks that took place in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian, and Arabic.
