What are the ‘must have’ targets and ‘must do’ actions that can accelerate the necessary transformations to a safe, just and habitable planet for all? This question is the focus of the GF22 Global Futures Conference.

Co-convened by the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory™ at Arizona State University and The Earth League, the GF22 Global Futures Conference will bring together members of the public and private sectors, scientists, youth and activists from around the globe to formulate a bold and actionable agenda to push the boundaries of discourse on what can – and must – be done now.

The interactive format will enable participants to integrate and synthesize knowledge from multiple frameworks and perspectives. It will foster an open dialogue with diverse perspectives on feasible, immediate action towards the transitions needed to avoid irreparable harm to the earth system, including humankind.
