GLF Amazonia 2021: As it happened


On 21–23 September 2021, the GLF Amazonia digital conference put forth one clear message: the protection of the Amazon is crucial for the survival of people and ecosystems globally. Titled “The Tipping Point – Solutions from the Inside Out,” the event featured the foremost scientists conducting researching the Amazon’s dieback, Indigenous leaders sharing the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, the latest satellite technology developers monitoring the biome, young people who will continue some of the world’s most ancient cultures and traditions, political leaders shaping the region’s policy, and new partnerships aimed at achieving environmental sustainability and secure rights for Amazonian peoples.

Sessions, plenaries and launches were viewed more that 15,000 times, and key messages reached 27 million on social media.
