COP22 Global Landscapes Forum

Foreign Desk’s directors liaised with international media befoe and during the event, and placed an op-ed with Thomson Reuters by Peter Holmgren, CIFOR’s director general, on the landscapes approach. We chose the six finalists for GLF’s Launchpads and collaborated with winners on their press releases and promotional material, as well as handling media interviews and facilitation on the day of the event. Foreign Desk director Dean Nelson mediated Launchpad discussions with climate experts from around the world. We helped expand the GLF’s social media reach through new Twitter partners, so taking the message to hundreds of thousands of new people.
