GLP's 5th Open Science Meeting: Pathways to Sustainable and Just Land Systems

OSM GLP Scholars Travel Grant is now open until July 15th!


On November 4-8, 2024 the Global Land Programme (GLP) will hold our 5th Open Science Meeting (OSM) in Oaxaca, Mexico. The GLP is a global interdisciplinary network of science and practice, working to foster understanding of land systems and the next generation of science-based solutions for local- to global-scale challenges.

Land is where we live, grow our food, and derive resources and where a majority of the world’s people derive their livelihoods. The GLP community works in and studies land systems around the planet: complex, dynamic and interdependent social-ecological systems that blend activities of people with the rest of nature. While land use generates many sustainability challenges, it is also key to overcoming existential challenges that humanity is facing, and to achieving sustainable development.

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees of the OSM, and the Scientific Steering Committee of GLP, we are thrilled to invite you, scientists and practitioners from across the Americas and the world, and from diverse disciplines and experiences, to join us for this gathering in Oaxaca, where we will seek to generate and reinvigorate conversations grounded in the strength of our collective and diverse knowledge towards just and sustainable transformations.

Check out all of the amazing activities and cultural events Oaxaca has to offer from GLP member, and Oaxacan native Pablo Gonzalez Moctezuma!
