Hosted on the sidelines of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and online, GLF Climate 2022: Frontiers of Changeunited 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.

What can we do now and where do we go from here?

 

Humanity is facing a barrage of interconnected crises: climate change, conflict, hunger, high inflation, and the enduring impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. From heatwaves to hurricanes, fires to floods, the effects of the climate crisis are already being felt across the globe. Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine is causing energy prices to spiral and exposing our addiction to fossil fuels.

So, where do we go from here? What should we have done yesterday, and what do we need to do now?

This plenary highlights how interconnected crises underscore the need for urgent, collective, and integrated efforts. Listen to climate activists, local champions, and leaders in policy, science, and business discuss pathways and opportunities to accelerate climate action, deliver on climate justice, and ramp up climate finance.
