How to participate
LOCATION (Fully virtual)
We are pleased to inform you that the Conference has transitioned to an online event.
Sessions will be held virtually through ZOOM (registered participants will be provided with a link to attend sessions).
Having sessions online allows us to include more participants than a physical, in-person conference. It also helps to reduce our carbon footprint as we reduce the travel mileage of participants attending, while still being able to create a thriving ‘community of practice’ on Locally – Led Adaptation issues.
We intend to have sessions across multiple geographical regions. This year the conference sessions will run for 24 Hours, every day from 10th March – 16th March 2023!!!
We encourage and welcome all Climate enthusiasts to attend the Conference!!!
The conference schedule combines over 70 sessions, such as;, Thematic Webinars, Organizational Sessions, Networking & Participatory events.
The Gobeshona conference series, centers on ‘actionable research’ that can help make effective policies and inform climate actions to support vulnerable communities.
Research that are presented within the conference are encouraged to focus on: Practical lessons, Effective solutions, Innovative ideas – that can be put into action.
