Stories of Hope

Join us for a series of inspirational talks from speakers around the globe

More than thirty passionate speakers will present compelling accounts of conservation success. There will be talks by UK-based experts and youth leaders, as well as inspiring conservation projects from further afield. We’ll journey to the wetlands of Kenya and the reefs of the Maldives, as well as find out what’s happening in the British countryside and in pioneering schools in Brighton and Ghana. We will hear from a climate campaigner, from the engineers who have invented an extraordinary device for stopping car pollution at source, and from one of the architects of the ground-breaking Paris Climate Agreement. Our Stories of Hope speakers will share their stories of what it takes to bring critically endangered species like the pink pigeon back from the brink, remove plastic waste from the oceans, and dramatically shrink a region’s carbon footprint.

Alongside these talks, there will also be the chance to ask some of the speaker's questions at several Q&A sessions throughout the week.

Please check back from Monday 22 February to find out more about the individual talks and speakers.
