We Make Tomorrow summit
Wednesday February 26, 2020, 10:00 - 19:00
We are in a #ClimateEmergency
In the last year we have seen an explosion of action on the climate crisis; from sector-wide declarations of climate emergency, to young people leading global strikes, and the UK’s first ever party leader’s election debate on climate and nature.
Join us for our flagship 2020 summit We Make Tomorrow: Creative climate action in a time of crisis to be at the forefront of an urgent and creative plan for change.
This provocative, intergenerational and action-focused event will bring creative-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 and ecological emergency, ahead of the crucial COP26 climate talks.
What to Expect
Taking place on Wednesday 26th February 2020 at the Royal Geographical Society London, we will bring together high-profile expert speakers and facilitators with an audience of over 300 from across the UK and beyond.
Together we will 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?
This day-long event 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, viable and just future society.
Expect interactive sessions, performances, high profile keynotes, and cross-disciplinary discussion. As a participant of this event, we would like you to bring your vision, experience and expertise to help shape and contribute towards the day.
