About GLF Climate 2021


Hosted digitally and in Glasgow alongside COP26, the GLF Climate 2021 hybrid conference made a unanimous call for ambitious, concrete action to stop the climate crisis.

Attended by 4,386 digital participants from 145 countries, along with 481 in-person participants at the University of Glasgow, the event featured 400 leading scientists, activists, Indigenous leaders, financiers, youth, and government leaders.

Across 67 plenaries, interactive sessions, launches, and climate talks, GLF Climate: Forests, Food, Finance – Frontiers of Change explored the potential of three key climate solutions: forest restoration, resilient food systems, and sustainable finance. Messages spread on social media rallied 41.34 million people around concrete ways to address the climate emergency as quickly as possible.


Why forests, food and finance are key to securing a sustainable future


We are poised at a critical moment in human and planetary history: the decisive decade to act against climate change and restore our relationship with nature. Over the last three days, we have heard extensively about why forests, food and finance are key to securing a sustainable future.

But what we have been doing is not enough. Transformative change requires radical collaboration and integrated action at speed and scale, across forests, food and finance – as we call them, the ‘frontiers of change’.

At the Closing Plenary of GLF Climate, be inspired and challenged by climate champions from the grassroots to the global. Ordinary citizens, activists, youth, Indigenous Peoples, local communities, business, government and development leaders will join us at the University of Glasgow – and online from around the world – to pave the way for action beyond COP26.
