DAY 1 - 8TH JULY: How can I make a difference? Discover the skills and confidence you need in order to be an effective change maker. Learn how to find your voice, your purpose and the tools needed for self-care, resilience & to find your dream job.

DAY 2 - 15TH JULY: What is the future we choose? Let's reimagine our world. How can we create a zero-carbon - clean, green and fair - world by 2030?

  • FULL CATALYST SUMMIT*: This includes three separate one and half hour classes each day, over 3 days. On the final day you get the opportunity to meet a mentor to work with over the next 3 - 6 months, to help you on your journey as a confident change maker.
  • DAY 1 & DAY 2: Join us for just one day or better still both day 1 and 2, a good option if you can't make all the dates or commit to the full programme.
  • We will also run an optional informal 'Networking, Reflection & Wellbeing' session on the Friday of the first and second week (11am - 12pm 10th & 17th July) to allow more time for you to get to know each other, reflect on the learning and try out personal development and well being tools.
  • All sessions will be recorded so don't worry if you can't make all of them.
  • You will receive the full agenda during the first week of July - however do keep an eye on our social media during June - as we will be revealing details there about the speakers and content too.

Hear what others have said about our courses:

Sustainability is an exciting industry to work because it is growing so rapidly, and there is so much innovation involved. All the speakers that I talked to were very passionate about their own subject and enjoyed discussing it with us, giving the impression that you can combine your work with what you are passionate about.” Emilie

"I would highly recommend it, as it not only teaches you about sustainability, it teaches you about business, female empowerment, self love & much more. It really helped me build my confidence and team skills and I think it is especially important for girls to have an experience like it.” Iris
