About GLF Climate: Frontiers of Change
Humanity is facing a barrage of interconnected crises: climate change, conflict, hunger, high inflation, and the enduring impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hosted digitally and in Sharm El Sheikh alongside COP27, GLF Climate 2022: Frontiers of Change seeks answers on how to build a low-carbon economy that puts people and nature first. Across 47 plenaries, interactive sessions, launches, and more, leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth, and policymakers piece together the climate puzzle.
