The new online community hub for the Global Landscapes Forum is called GLFx. GLFx is committed to enthusiastic individuals who are attempting to quicken the process of moving toward more sustainable, integrated landscape management. GLFx is created to give community members the connections, information, and technology they need to connect, share, learn, and take action both online and offline.
With initial financing of EUR 5,000, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLFx) initiative is launching a call to assist new GLFx chapters that are driving local action for the sustainability of Africa’s landscapes.
Applications from NGOs, groups and networks of organizations focused on multi-stakeholder partnerships, restoration, or sustainable agrifood systems are especially encouraged.
GLFx was developed to use community initiatives to promote sustainable landscapes to transform landscapes from the ground up. The effort is driven by community action plans that seek to encourage information sharing, local restoration action execution, and community mobilization training.
The following will be given to selected chapters:
- €5,000 in seed money to support chapter operations.
- Training on community mobilization to support coordinated restoration efforts.
- Toolkits or workshops to aid in the execution of a community action plan.
- GLFx Secretariat help in important areas.
- Promotional possibilities through the GLFx chapter network, connections to and assistance for GLF charter members in their area.
If you acquire seed funds and establish a chapter, you will be required to:
- Offer frequent multi-stakeholder events, either in person or online, to mobilize your neighbourhood and plan neighbourhood projects.
- Create a digital hub on the GLFx platform to promote your possibilities and events and to draw more people to your chapter.
- Organize and execute initiatives
- Join monthly meetings, participate in knowledge-sharing activities sponsored by the GLF, and routinely connect and work with the organization.
- Participate in endeavours that promote education, knowledge creation and sharing, multi-stakeholder cooperation, sustainable lifestyles, and socioeconomic transformation.
The request is for networks, collaborations, projects, teams, and organizations that:
- Possess an African foundation.
- Encourage local initiatives and community gatherings for sustainable land usage.
- Possess an administrative framework to accept and handle finances, are organized, and are varied.
- Gender balance, a crucial component of a team, will be taken into consideration throughout the selection process.
- Please keep in mind that experience in organizing individuals to promote local action is a plus.
- Applications are especially requested from organizations that have a strong commitment to supporting sustainable agriculture and restoration.
- Applications are especially encouraged from groups of people or organizations who have already started collaborations and conversations with other landscape stakeholders.
