There is a growing perception that environmental campaigns are no longer working and that despite the popular support of vast swathes of society, investment in clean technologies and the political rhetoric committing to urgent action, greener economic models are not cutting through into the mainstream at the pace that is required.
In response to this we are organising the first New Environmentalism Summit which brings together celebrities, former politicians, business leaders, media and other personalities, and some of the world's leading NGOs to discuss why we have not collectively made the necessary breakthroughs and how we might do so in the future. Each speaker will outline from their personal experiences what has worked and what has not worked over the past 40 years, and where they think the environmental movement needs to go from here.
We promise a great line-up of speakers and an entertaining and thought-provoking opening to Green Week.
