GLOBE Forum 2024 Recap and Highlight Reel

It’s been just over a month since we wrapped GLOBE Forum 2024 (Feb. 13-15) in Vancouver!

We’re still feeling inspired by the interconnectedness, collaboration, and respect at the core of all three days of programming.

Watch as GLOBE Series President Elizabeth Shirt reflects on the importance of accelerating solutions for Reaching Destination Net Zero, Restoring and Protecting Nature, Ensuring Water Security, and Building Resilient Communities, and shares why this community of changemakers gives her hope for our climate future.

A regenerative future is inherently hopeful and coming together is one of the most impactful ways we can share the information, resources, and inspiration needed to achieve our climate and sustainability goals.

Thank you to every one of our delegates, speakers, partners, and collaborators for your passion and dedication to making this year’s GLOBE Forum our most intersectional and solutions-focused yet!

Highlights from Feb. 15 at GLOBE Forum 2024

That’s a wrap on GLOBE Forum 2024!

Agency, interconnectedness, collaboration, and reciprocity were all at the core of today’s final day of programming. A regenerative future is inherently hopeful and coming together is one of the most impactful ways we can share the information, resources, and optimism needed to achieve our climate and sustainability goals.

Watch as GLOBE Series’ Elizabeth Shirt reflects on Feb. 15 at GLOBE Forum and consider these words of family and partnership from Sustainable Energy & Sovereignty Specialist, Jordyn Burnouf:

“We’re all here handing out business cards, connecting, to build a better future – one where the world exists and where we can be together – and are actively participating in a foundational teaching of Indigenous governance. We talk about SDGs, business development, equity partnerships but what it really is, is kinship.”

Highlights from Feb. 13 and Feb. 14 at GLOBE Forum 2024

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!
