SAVE THE DATE: Feb. 27–Mar. 1, 2023

 

We have the ambition. We’ve made the commitment. We know what to do.

It’s time to get down to business at GLOBExCHANGE. ​

Join us in Toronto to accelerate the exchange of solutions, skillsets and dollars that will take us farther and faster on the road to net zero.​

 

THE EVOLUTION OF GLOBE

 

For over 30 years, GLOBE Forum has been bringing innovators and changemakers together to accelerate the transformation to a clean economy.

In 2021, we brought you the final installment of GLOBE Capital. This series focused on unlocking investment, scaling innovation, and driving transactions to hasten this transformation.

In 2023, we need more speed, more scale, more solutions. The answer? More cross-sector collaboration. GLOBExCHANGE is a platform for partnership, where leaders will exchange solutions, skillsets and dollars to succeed in a net-zero future.​​

YOUR PATH TO NET ZERO

At GLOBE Forum 2022 we created the 10×10 – the action plan that identifies the 10 actions in 10 years we need to take to get to net zero.

​The action areas identified in the 10×10 are the foundation of GLOBExCHANGE programming. Delegates will have the opportunity to play an active role in developing the solutions that will help us accelerate towards our net-zero goals.

The 10 action areas are:

 

  1. Mobilizing & Deploying Capital​
  2. Unlocking Innovation​
  3. Transparency & Reporting​
  4. Resiliency
  5. Creating a Circular Economy
  6. Nature-based Solutions​
  7. Indigenous Engagement
  8. Infrastructure
  9. Transportation​
  10. Energy​

OPPORTUNITIES TO ExCHANGE

GLOBExCHANGE will empower North America’s premier community of climate and sustainability leaders, decision makers and innovators to develop solutions that drive results for their own organizations, for our economy, and for our planet.

“I came away from GLOBE Forum very inspired that despite the tragic effects of climate change we see ravaging our surrounding ecosystem, there is progress being made and this transition presents an opportunity to make a better world.

Much of the discussion focussed not only on reducing emissions and meeting climate targets, but incorporating much needed changes into the new infrastructure and systems including other environmental benefits, inclusivity, diversify, climate equity and justice. This is real progress. I know that with decision makers like this behind the wheel, we’re going to build a future our children will be proud of, and I am honoured to be counted among them.

Thank you GLOBE Series for this necessary and inspiring event – I look forward to continuing the discussion!”

This has been such an amazing opportunity – after so much time apart – to connect with others face to face, have insightful conversations, and to listen and learn as we look towards a more sustainable future together.

What a great week! Thank you to all the inspiring people and connections I’ve made this past week. This has been a challenging and thought provoking dialogue as we addressed issues of climate change; sustainable development; climate justice; social equity and many more important societal issues that must be addressed.

I’m leaving feeling inspired and hopeful for things to come.”

While I found that many of the presentations this week defined the complexities of addressing climate change at a high-level, the one-on-one conversations were used to set action items on what’s needed to decarbonize at scale and, most importantly, reach a just net zero world.

Huge thank you to the The Delphi Group, GLOBE Series, and Leading Change for creating a space for these conversations to take place!”

[The Nature-based Solutions Anchoring Event at the 2021 Climate Adaptation Summit] was fabulous, both in content and execution. Your experience in event management really came through in how smoothly and professionally it ran, and your highly collaborative work with our team really enabled us to get the best possible speakers and to draw out the key messages. Elizabeth did a wonderful job as moderator in making it as interactive as possible and keeping it lively. We are very pleased with the result – it seems to me like a model for on-line events that would be hard to beat!
