What is Blue Earth Summit?

We harness the power of being outdoors to bring people together to build a more positive future for our planet.

Over 3 days, our venues in Bristol play host to 5,000+ decision makers, industry pioneers, provocative thought-leaders, sustainability trailblazers, insightful solutionists and boundary-pushing start ups. It’s the place to explore, meet, learn, collaborate and take action.

The Summit features keynotes, panel discussions, workshops and roundtables, an onsite marketplace facilitating over 25,000 meetings, a live pitching competition and much more!
