what's it all about?

The 3-day Catalyst Summit kicks off our 2021/22 learning & mentoring progamme.

Providing a friendly and interactive space for you to learn how to make a difference, to ask & solve the important questions:

  • what if the world really were gender equal and fair for everyone?
  • what if the world was powered just by renewable energy, with clear skies & clean air?
  • what if I had the confidence and skills to help make that change?

Over 3 days in July you will meet other like-minded young women who also want to explore and learn about these topics with each other and from some of the leading sustainability experts & practitioners.

Details of all the speakers, facilitators, businesses, NGO’s - to be announced soon! Follow us on INSTAGRAM for updates.

It's a great opportunity to meet and get connected to women in professional sustainability networks.

You will also be matched with you own mentor - a woman already working in social justice & environmental protection - who will help support your change maker journey for up to six months following the Catalyst Summit.

Hear what others said about our Catalyst Summit last year:

"It was inspiring to be connected with so many other women in sustainability."

"If you have an interest in sustainability and protecting the planet, or want to give equal rights to all, or just want a career where you feel as if you have made a difference to someone, somewhere, then you should definitely participate in the Catalyst summit! I met a group of young women who were all inspiring in their own way and who all care about the same things as me. The amazing experience, led by two incredible women Traci and Jenna, gave me hope for a better future for all."

"A truly well-rounded great experience. It was so exciting to be in a virtual room full of bright, enthusiastic, loud and confident woman! I honestly think Catalyse Change have brought a value-for-money opportunity to young woman trying to break into the sustainability sector.

"I feel a fire reignited as to why I want to work in Sustainability and have found a supportive community who not only helped me throughout the course of the Summit but will be a group I continue to connect with, ask for advice and show up with my support too! Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"This is a great way to interact with both women who have jobs in sustainability and with young women who are in a similar position to me, wanting to start a career in sustainability, but need some advice.

"The Catalyst Summit gives you the opportunity to learn and ask questions to women with a career and sustainability and to get to know and form connections with all the other young women in the progamme! I loved it and would highly recommend."

"DO it! it's totally awesome and Jenna and Traci are brilliant hosts and facilitators. I had so much fun."
