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!

Watch to hear from GLOBE Series’ President, Elizabeth Shirt, and catch up on all the GLOBE Forum 2024 highlights so far:
