Event description
We Make Tomorrow: Creative Climate Action in a time of crisis

About this Event

Science tells us that we have a decade within which to make unprecedented and far-reaching changes to all aspects of society. Decisions made in the coming years will be critical in determining our future. 

This provocative, intergenerational and action-focused summit will bring creative and cultural leaders and institutions together with funders, grassroots activists, policy-makers and the scientific community to explore what creativity, leadership and innovation means in the context of Climate Emergency, ahead of the crucial COP26 climate talks.

Taking place on Wednesday 26th February 2020, this event will bring together high-profile expert speakers and facilitators with an audience of over 300 from across the UK and beyond to ask: What will the world be like in 2030, and what can the creative and cultural community do now to push us closer to the future we want?  

During the day we will look at the political, demographic, economic and social forces driving our changing climate and devastating loss of nature, and explore how the arts and cultural sector can be galvanised to move us towards net-zero whilst laying foundations for a more connected and just future society.

What will this event entail?

A full programme and speakers will be announced shortly, however you can expect interactive sessions, performances, high profile keynotes, and cross-disciplinary discussion. As a participant of this event, we ask you to bring your vision, experience and expertise to help shape and contribute towards the day.

    FAQs

    - Am I eligible for a regular ticket?

    If you are applying within an organisation, and your annual turnover is less than £1mn, you are eligible for the standard ticket rate. If you are applying as an individual, you are eligible for the standard ticket rate. In the interest of fairness, we reserve the right to challenge any tickets purchased at a lower rate if you are eligible for the larger organisational rate.

    There are only a limited number of early bird tickets on offer. As soon as the early bird allocation is fully booked, standard rate tickets will become available. Please note there are only 300 tickets available for this event in total, so we expect to sell out and advise booking your ticket early to avoid disappointment.
