Global Commons Alliance (GCA)
Digital Marketing Manager

The Global Commons Alliance (GCA) is a network of organizations working together in thoughtful collaboration to ensure that societies and the global economy thrive, sustained by healthy global commons, on a stable and resilient planet. The GCA was formed to catalyse urgent action to protect and restore the global commons – the interconnected systems that support life on Earth: from the Arctic sea ice to the Amazon rainforest, from critical ocean currents to our fresh water network.

The mission of the GCA is to empower citizens, cities, companies, and countries to become effective stewards of the global commons. Our vision is a safe and just future for the planet and all its people.  After a three year start-up phase, the Global Commons Alliance is now in full implementation mode.

The Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) is one of five components that make up the Global Commons Alliance.
