Earth Optimism will be happening in conjunction with the Cambridge Festival between 26 March & 4 April 2021

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. Wetlands are being rebuilt. In some places, deforestation is slowing down. Numbers of some of our rarest creatures are on the rise. People are making this change happen.

In these unprecedented and difficult times, we need optimism more than ever - to uplift us, inspire us, and help us imagine a new path forward. The #EarthOptimism movement brings people together to talk about what's working to protect the future of our planet. Through Earth Optimism, we invite you to learn what is working in conservation and why. Discover how every one of us can become more involved in the fight to protect the natural world. Join hands with people around the world in a global movement of #EarthOptimism

This virtual event is organised by Cambridge Conservation Initiative and is running in conjunction with the Cambridge Festival

Join us for 10 days of content with inspiring talks from leading conservationists such as Sir David Attenborough, Chris Packham and Liz Bonnin to discover ideas and solutions for making positive changes in our lives.
