Catalyzing inclusive transformation through GLF’s youth and community-based programs

Everyday millions of people face challenges brought on by centuries of unfair systems that impacted societies and nature. But every day, many of those same people wake up with an incredible drive to improve their lives and those of their communities. Recognizing the need to support local action for global change, the Global Landscapes Forum works closely with youth, women, farmers, restorers and indigenous people, to identify the challenges, provide opportunities, scale change, and improve the lives of vulnerable communities.

This session will focus on the learnings from GLF’s connection with local communities, highlighting the importance of linking scientific knowledge and expertise with local knowledge and action to catalyze just transformations and thriving landscapes.
