September 19-21, 2023
New York City, Javits Center
The GF23 Global Futures Conference brought together members of the public and private sectors, science and academia, Indigenous communities and youth from around the globe, to actualize bold steps for governments, corporations and multilateral institutions to push the boundaries of discourse on how we can–and must–act to save our planet.
Our world requires humans to act urgently so that we may repair and relieve the stresses we as a global society have placed upon it. In September 2022, GF22 convened with committed global stakeholders who established the 10 Must-haves Initiative, a comprehensive set of Must-have targets with Must-do actions that can lead the change necessary to provide a future where all may thrive. To take the next step, our world needs an engaged and committed alliance of global citizens who have authority and access to see these Must-haves and Must-do’s are implemented. This was the purpose of GF23.
This event is co-convened by the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory based at Arizona State University and Planet, and took place amidst the United Nations General Assembly and Climate Week in Manhattan.
