What to expect from FuturePlanet events and the community.

"FuturePlanet is a real community it is a group of people who share the same values and bring their different perspectives, but are all there to be generous, give what they can, take what they need and to just have a nice time together, and I really value that in my working life." Sarah Holloway

“Phenomenal. Great energy, inspiring people and brilliant discussions. If you're looking to get involved in a highly curated, intelligent and purpose-driven community - look no more.” Emilien Hoet, Head of ClimatePartner UK

“The level of interest and engagement on the topic of climate change was great. I felt inspired by a great group today, with a really good vibe that was very heart-centered and people coming from a place of passion. It is really easy to get discouraged or pessimistic given the challenges are so big and feel so out of our reach, but being in this place and having these conversations has been really inspiring.” Yui Kamikawa, Senior Manager, Global Sustainability, Coca-Cola

“Today was absolutely wonderful in terms of the richness of the debate and conversations around supply chains’ Everyone left their ego at the door and it's very very refreshing, that magic is very refreshing.” Christele Delbe, Head of Innovation & Partnerships, Bonsucro

“As a sustainability manager you're managing so many issues, so coming to an event like Packaging:Unwrapped means you are surrounded by people that can help support you, provide solutions to your challenges and you come out of it feeling you have a network to help.” Vicky Murray, Sustainability Manager, Pukka Herbs

“We are engaged with EuroPaper Plus and their envoPAP paper product made from sugar cane waste materials. We are going to seriously review their product with a view to testing this out on real client work. I wouldn't have been aware of them if it wasn't for FuturePlanet.” Kevin Dunkley, CIO HH Global

“Getting people with different points of view from different sectors all coming together to talk openly on the issues has been amazing and refreshing.” Connor Deacon, Community Trade, Body Shop
