Special Edition
Join us next week at the GLF Amazonia Digital Conference: The Tipping Point - Solutions from the Inside Out from 21-23 September. We’ve got 200 tickets to giveaway - first come, first served! Scroll down to find the code. Remember that GLF Amazonia is free for residents of countries in Latin America & Caribbean.

Young people around the world are rising up together, making their voices heard in protest against climate change, the destruction of their futures and of the future of our planet. In Colombia, for example, young activists are backing their legal fight for climate justice with action on the streets. Youth will be taking their concerns to COP 26 in Glasgow later this year. A recent worldwide survey of youth showed very high levels of concern – and also of engagement.

So now, how can we support this mass youth movement, while working for our present and futures?

GLF Amazonia offers a unique opportunity for youth – particularly, those across Latin America and the Caribbean – to learn from each other and inspire action. We will be joined by thousands of participants, including youth leaders, scientists, policymakers, activists, investors, restoration practitioners, community and Indigenous groups, civil society organizations, media and more.

This event will feature around 30 young speakers and stream seven youth-led sessions; additionally, some 40 participants have been selected for a mentorship program.

Find the event agenda here. Please note that all times are displayed in your own particular timezone.

Two young entrepreneurs think that the answer is definitely “YES” , and will share the details of their efforts on 22 September 2021 during the “Young Ecopreneurs: moving away from business as usual” episode of the Youth Daily Show.
On 23 September 2021, join the “Climate Activism in Brazil 101” episode of the Youth Daily Show to hear the personal stories of two activists who are deeply involved in the climate movement of the Amazon region.

Once you’re in a session, grab your favorite snacks and beverage, get comfortable and enjoy the event. Don’t hesitate to ask questions and share your thoughts in the chat available throughout the sessions.

A special thanks to over 150 amazing volunteers who are supporting GLF Amazonia!

Make sure to also join us at GLF Climate alongside COP 26 in Glasgow! If you can’t make it to Glasgow, we’ll bring Glasgow to you!

As uneven access to vaccinations and travel budgets hamper many climate heroes’ desires to attend COP26 – particularly young people and those in the Global South – the GLF Climate Hybrid Conference provides a channel for bringing more of these critical voices to the table.

This hard-hitting, inclusive climate event will create a physical and digital space where climate heroes, local stewards, and Indigenous Peoples, and GLF's 250,000+ strong community can join forces with the wider community to debate, discuss and act on the latest evidence and analysis for navigating the climate crisis. All are welcome to join us at the historic University of Glasgow or online on 5-7 November 2021.

We’ll see you there!
