Attend Earth Optimism 2021

Join us in celebrating conservation successes and learn what we can all do to make a difference

Attend Earth Optimism 2021

Join us in 2021 in celebrating conservation successes through our Stories of Hope programme. As well as talks we will host interviews with conservation entrepreneurs and showcase videos capturing real-world conservation gains from around the globe. We're also hosting a Solutions Fair where you can discover and share practical advice on everyday actions we can all take to make a real difference to the planet.

Everyone is welcome at #EarthOptimism Cambridge, and all events are free to attend. Arrive inspired - and leave empowered.

Stories of Hope

More than 30 passionate speakers will present compelling accounts of conservation success. These inspiring talks come from many different sources – from ground-breaking conservationists to inspiring youth champions, and from business leaders to engaged celebrities. We will find out what is happening in the Cambridgeshire countryside and in a pioneering secondary school, and we will journey from the forests of India to the grasslands of Kenya.

Solutions Fair

Recognising that a thriving natural world is achievable only if we are all involved, our family-focused Solutions Fair will explore how each of us can make a difference in our everyday lives. With top tips for lowering our food footprint and getting out into nature, and advice on actions from insulating our homes to joining campaigns, the stalls at the Fair will set out dozens of practical and effective ideas for change – and invite visitors to suggest their own.
