GLF Climate: Frontiers of Change
Hosted on the sidelines of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and online, GLF Climate 2022: Frontiers of Change united 7,000 participants 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.
Inspiring engagement and action through rainforest journalism
The panelists highlight the importance of journalism, education, and outreach cross-sectoral efforts in tackling climate change, derived from the multi-format rainforest journalism by Pulitzer Center fellows on rampant deforestation, the absence of indigenous community safeguarding, as well as ground-level developments related to carbon trading.
This session showcases the power of rainforest journalism to inspire engagement and action by educational communities and civil society groups to address the climate crisis in the global south, accelerating actions of the climate goals, as well as revealing social injustice in the process of climate change reduction.
