We’ve extended the Virtual Conscious Festival by one day so we can get down to business on Friday 12 June. Break up the monotony of working from home with a trip to our virtual world for you and your colleagues.
This year the Virtual Conscious Festival has been extended to a three-day event to make space for a raft of business-centric talks, panels, and workshops. You might be looking for ways you can transform your business to operate more sustainably. Or interested in finding out more about why businesses play such a fundamental role in solving the climate emergency. Or you might just want to listen and be inspired by some seriously impressive sustainable leaders. Whatever the reason, block Friday 12 June out in your diary. And invite your colleagues too.
Why are we doing this?
One of our goals at GITNB is to work with organisations to inspire them to operate more consciously. We want to see sustainability at the top of corporate agendas and become an intrinsic part of business strategy. Not just a nice to have tick box exercise that gets delegated down to a Karen.
What to expect
So what’s happening on Friday 12 June? A lot; buckle up.
We’ve lined up a series of industry experts and thought leaders to discuss a range of pressing issues. From understanding what money has to do with sustainability and the prospect of green new deals, to doughnut economics and whether the Paris Agreement still exists in 2020. Our thought-provoking talks, panels, and discussions will challenge you to think differently and elevate your consciousness. You’ll leave armed with fresh ideas to take back to your organisations that will help create real change.
Our speakers span industries and sectors and include some of the brightest names in sustainability. Including:
Brune Poirson: French Secretary of State attached to the Minister of Ecological and Inclusive Transition
Zoe Knight: Managing Director, Group Head of the HSBC Centre of Sustainable Finance
Ruth Andrade: Co-Founder, Regenerative Impact, Earth Care & Giving, LUSH
Kay Vasey: Chief Connecting Officer, Meshminds
Malin Pettersson-Beckeman: Head of Sustainability Communications and Engagement, Inter IKEA Group
Markus Gnirck: Head of Asia Oceanworks
Arizona Muse: Model and Sustainability advocate
To see the full line-up of speakers and talks during the Business Day, visit our official event platform, hopin. Psssst…! Between sessions, be sure to swing by the EXPO to check out our marketplace bursting with incredible small conscious businesses and brands for you to shop.
What this is not
Another boring Zoom conference. Our hopin event platform provides an immersive experience. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, live-chat, participate in discussions, and engage with our stellar line-up. We also have a speed networking zone where you can chat with other like-minded individuals about the issues that matter to you the most.
We aim to inspire all attendees to leave the Virtual Conscious Festival feeling empowered and ready to take action today. And our #LittleGreenSteps campaign is as relevant for individuals as it is for organisations. We know we can’t solve the climate crisis overnight. And we know that sustainability is a journey. So making small, continuous adjustments to our lifestyles is the easiest way to move forward and create real change.
This year, we’re taking it one step further by asking everyone to take our #LittleGreenSteps pledge to hold yourself, and others, accountable. Visit our Take Action Now page for #LittleGreenSteps inspiration and to take your pledge today.
