Earth Optimism: 22 April 2017

Join us to celebrate #EarthOptimism in Cambridge on 22 April 2017.

Given the crisis facing nature, it is all too easy to give up hope. Yet, around the globe we are winning the fight to protect the natural world. Deforestation is slowing down. Wetlands are being rebuilt. Numbers of some of our rarest creatures are on the rise. People are making this change happen. Stand with us on Earth Day 2017 to celebrate what is working and why. Discover how every one of us can become more involved in winning the fight – come to #EarthOptimism Cambridge.

New Networks for Nature: 22-24 September 2016

CCI was delighted to be a co-host for the New Networks for Nature conference, Nature Matters, in September 2016. This was the eighth New Networks for Nature conference, and the first to take place in Cambridge. Building on the broad interdisciplinary networks that the New Networks for Nature group have fostered over the years, speakers at this year's conference included poets, singers, researchers and journalists. The Saturday of the conference also offered a new feature, in which attendees were able to take part in practical workshops throughout the David Attenborough Building. The conference closed with a final sessions focusing on hope, which included a rousing (and hope-filled) speech by Sir David Attenborough; the video of this last session can be viewed here

The Youth Nature Network, A Focus on Nature, has also written a blog about attending the conference.
