The first full day of GLOBE Forum 2024 programming was an action-packed, inspiration-filled sprint to create a regenerative, resilient, net-zero future. From starting off in a good way with the Squamish Nation’s Spokesperson Wilson Williams and the Children of Takaya Dancers of Tsleil-Waututh Nation, to plenary deep dives on building resilient communities, ensuring water security, reaching destination net zero, and restoring and protecting nature. We heard from diverse leaders including Hon. Sean Fraser, Premier David Eby, Secwepemcul’ecw Restoration and Stewardship Society (SRSS) CEO Angela Kane, Hon. Nathan Cullen, WWF-Canada’s Megan Leslie, the iconic Pattie Gonia, and many more. We can’t wait for what tomorrow brings!
Watch to hear from GLOBE Series’ President, Elizabeth Shirt, and catch up on all the GLOBE Forum 2024 highlights so far:
Following their recent collaboration on the Canada Pavilion at COP28, Canada’s Ambassador for Climate Change Catherine Stewart joins GLOBE President Elizabeth Shirt to discuss the key successes and challenges emerging out of Dubai, and what’s ahead for Canada.
Continue the conversation at GLOBE Forum 2024 (Feb. 13-15) with a leadership dialogue in collaboration with Environment and Climate Change Canada, Measuring Sustainability: From National Strategy to Local Action. Join this session to explore strategies for making more informed decisions about economic, social, and environmental sustainability.
It’s no longer enough to simply “do less bad”, we must “do more good”. At GLOBE Forum 2024 (Feb. 13-15) you’ll connect with the leaders and changemakers who are driving net positive impacts for our economy, for our planet, and for humanity.
Join us in Vancouver, BC to reach beyond sustainability to regeneration – and register as a delegate before rates increase on Jan. 26!
“What about our climate future keeps you up at night? What gives you hope?”
Representing society’s toughest challenges and greatest opportunities, the GLOBE Forum 2024 (Feb. 13-15) program tracks are intrinsically linked, and we must accelerate solutions that address them together: Reaching Destination Net Zero; Building Resilient Communities; Ensuring Water Security; and Restoring and Protecting Nature.
Explore the growing program and join us in Vancouver, BC to drive positive impacts for our economy, for our planet, and for humanity.

The path to net zero will require hard work, creativity, and a whole lot of collaboration. To help fuel and shape this collaboration, we have distilled the key takeaways from GLOBE Forum 2022 into the 10 action areas we need to prioritize in the next 10 years to achieve net zero by 2050.
Over the next few months, we will be developing an interactive 10×10 Matrix that highlights the actions that governments, businesses, and NGOs can take to achieve this ambitious but urgent target. We hope the 10×10 Matrix will not only inspire action, but also help you to better understand how your actions are connected to and enable others in your ecosystem.
To ensure that the 10×10 Matrix is representative of the issues facing diverse stakeholder groups, we have engaged the Leading Change Steering Committee and other partners. Virtual GLOBE Forum delegates will also have the opportunity to provide input into the full matrix in the coming weeks
The 10×10 will come to life at GLOBExCHANGE – our next Destination Net Zero event, taking place in Toronto on February 27 – March 1, 2023. GLOBExCHANGE will build on the conversations at GLOBE Forum and use the 10×10 Matrix as a basis for driving meaningful change in pursuit of our net-zero goals.
Thank you to the GLOBE Advance session partners, and The Delphi Group’s expert facilitators, notetakers, and content reviewers.
