The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) entered a new era in December 2017 when it successfully launched its next five-year phase, centered on building a worldwide movement to connect and engage one billion people around sustainable land use.
The inaugural meeting of this ‘new’ GLF was held from 19-20 December at the World Conference Center in Bonn, Germany, where the movement will take up residence over the next five years.
At the most recent summit in Germany, more than 1,000 people from 104 countries – including world leaders, environmental activists, celebrities, youth, policymakers, Indigenous groups, researchers, scientists, media and more – collectively addressed and offered solutions to the most pressing challenges facing landscapes. Another 70,000 people from 114 countries engaged online during the two days of the Forum, with 42 million others joining the conversation via social media.
Check out the discussions, including key messages, challenges, opportunities and ways forward, in this Outcome Statement that synthesizes GLF Bonn 2017 interactions.
