BONN, Germany – Not only is the world’s supply of coffee at risk from climate change, but so are the livelihoods of 25 million farmers who sustain themselves by growing it – as climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic pull familiar certainties out from under our feet, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) calls on policymakers, activists, farmers, chefs, youth, corporations – and the rest of us – to plan for a better future for food systems and those whose livelihoods depend on them.
Today, the Global Landscapes Forum launched its 2020 theme: Food and Livelihoods
GLF is bringing that theme to life through an exciting lineup of free, open-access digital events with leading experts and thinkers, including:
- GLF Live with Lawrence Haddad (GAIN) on COVID-19 and food systems: 21 April, 15:00 CEST.
- Digital Forum: Food without Farmers – featuring Harvard nutrition expert, Walter Willet, and more: 23 April, 13:00 CEST.
- GLF Bonn Digital Conference: Food in the Time of Climate Crisis (see a growing list of speakers here): June 3-5.
Food production and agricultural systems are one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, a major driver of deforestation and the greatest threat to biodiversity.
It’s time to transform this problem into an opportunity, and learn together how to feed the world without eating the planet.
Be part of the solution – from wherever you are – by joining in one or more of GLF’s 2020 Food and Livelihoods digital events.
