Bringing urgency & action to the climate crisis.

Earthrise Sustainability Summit

Welcome to Earthrise, an innovation summit like no other…

Responding to the greatest threat to peace and security that we’ve encountered in modern times, Earthrise Summit’s mission is to bring entrepreneurship, urgency and action to the climate crisis. This is for industry leaders and their teams who want to expand their knowledge, share their perspectives and walk away with actionable ideas. Our goal is to inspire co-creation between founders, students, politicians, creatives, technologists, policy makers and SME’s that will generate immediate, meaningful action.

No holds barred

We’re at a pivotal moment in the race against the climate emergency, and while we might be losing, we believe it’s still a race we can win. Earthrise summit will examine some of the most provocative questions in sustainability and explore the most experimental and innovative ideas out there. No holds barred. Nothing's off the table. This is a space to challenge our perspectives, expand our minds, engage in meaningful debate and fuel revolution.

Urban future landscape

Earthrise Summit 2022 | Urban Futures

55% of the world's population are now living in urban areas and The UN predicts  this number to rise to 68% by 2050. We need to rethink the impact of urban existence and innovate - fast. Which is why this year’s Earthrise Summit will put a specific focus on the ways in which we can use our urban centres and cities to support a more sustainable future.
