Blue Earth Summit comes to London in 2024

Now in its fourth year, ‘Europe’s leading event for mission-led organisations’ arrives in the UK capital this autumn. 

Taking place at Woolwich Works between Tuesday 8th and Friday 18th October, 2024’s summit will be dedicated to ‘inspiring, connecting and acting’. 

5,000 innovators, startups, corporations, academics and politicians are set to be involved, alongside adventurers, conservation experts, celebrities and campaigners. 10 stages will host 300 speakers, with Ecotricity founder Dale Vince OBE, Deborah Meaden from TV’s Dragon’s Den, and the Arctic explorer and investor, Ben Saunders. Virgin, Diageo, British Business Bank, Rewilding Britain and Blue Marine Foundation will all have a presence. 

The team behind the Blue Earth Summit believe this is an opportunity for 1,000 climate-positive startups to access around £10billion of investment capital, fast-tracking their solutions, research and development. Three curated events will be held under the title FUTURES ahead of October dates, two in London and another in Brighton.

‘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,’ said Rewilding Britain’s CEO, Rebecca Wrigley. ‘There is hope and we need to work together to ensure a wilder, nature-rich future that benefits us all.’

‘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,’ added Blue Earth Summit Co-Founder, Will Hayler. ‘We have designed Blue Earth Summit and our satellite events as powerful levers to enable essential understanding and ignite collaboration. We know our entrepreneurial approach mixed with the energy of our community will catapult solutions to urgent planetary problems.’
