Eager to take the stage as a speaker? Apply to win an all-expense paid trip to Kyoto, Japan to hit the main stage of the Global Landscapes Forum. If you have at least 2 years of experience in climate action activities and a passion for sharing your story, this opportunity is for you. The deadline is on 31 March 2019.
GLF Kyoto will focus on how we can tackle climate change from the landscape. On May 13, experts from science, business, policy, international development and more will come join in person – and online from around the world, to focus on sustainable landscapes as one of the keys to climate mitigation and adaptation.
Discussions will emphasize the roles of trade, food production, investment, lifestyle and diet in a climate-smart future and may include:
- Practical approaches to implementing IPCC pathways to 1.5 degrees Celsius, focused on land-based solutions
- Innovative financial instruments to fund restoration and sustainable land use; strengthening the role of certification
- Innovative legal reforms in tenure and land-based investments that safeguard the rights of women, youth and local and indigenous peoples
- Ways of balancing food security with biodiversity and forest conservation and climate mitigation and adaptation
By applying as speaker, you will need to share the link to a video demonstrating your public speaking abilities, or tell us how you are tackling the climate challenge in a 60 second video.
