Entrepreneurs, Campaigners & Politicians join forces to catalyse change

Between 16-18 October 2024, Blue Earth Summit will land in London with an action led schedule and a mission led manifesto: Inspire. Connect. Act.

Taking place at Woolwich Works and now in its 4th year, this supercharged Blue Earth Summit will gather over 5000 innovators, startups, global corporations, politicians, adventurers, academics, celebrities and campaigners under one roof to connect together, act fast and create planet positive change.

Over 3 packed days and 10 stages, 300 speakers include Dragons Den’s Deborah Meaden, Ecotricity Founder Dale Vince OBE, Iceland CEO, Richard Walker, former Minister and Trustee of the Climate Group, Amber Rudd and Arctic Explorer & Investor, Ben Saunders, as well as representatives from a range of organisations including Virgin, Diageo, British Business Bank, Rewilding Britain and Blue Marine Foundation.

Inspire. Connect. Act. is a rallying call from the Founders of Blue Earth Summit for people and organisations to collaborate at pace, creating better outcomes for the health of the planet and humanity.

From city health to tech enabled conservation, nature, energy, water, fashion waste to finance and investment, every significant climate impact sector will be represented with talks, workshops, clinics and networking opportunities  to optimise learning and inspire action.

As an illustration of the manifesto, BE100 will give 1000 planet positive startups the opportunity to pitch to hundreds of investors, with access to £10 billion investment capital to fast forward their solutions.

A series of curated events prior to the Summit will further deliver the 3 step mission.  FUTURES  –  a series of UK and global events covering topics from oceans to creative industries. FORUM – a 2 day event at London Climate Week in June, connecting over 200 impact investors with 40 of the most exciting and scalable climate positive innovators, as well as expert speakers.

In the words of Deborah Meaden: “Climate change is one of the biggest opportunities of our time. We need purpose-led business to drive innovation & invest in long term solutions.”

Rewilding Britain CEO, Rebecca Wrigley added: “We are excited to connect with Blue Earth Summit,  a community which stands out as being purpose-driven, innovative and collaborative. We want Britain to be ambitious. We need to be. There is hope and we need to work together to ensure a wilder, nature-rich future that benefits us all.”

Blue Earth Summit Co-Founder, Will Hayler explains the ethos and ambition behind this year’s Blue Earth Summit: “We all recognise that time is running out to protect our planet. Our manifesto for Blue Earth Summit 2024, Inspire. Connect. Act.  is a direct and urgent rallying call for everyone – from business to policy makers, influencers and activists – to work together at greater pace.
