Bagboard Presents – Our Collective Power on the Planet

Community & Culture

We are constantly being bombarded with scary images in the press related to the environment; pictures of melting polar ice caps and single-use plastic piling up, resulting in apocalypse fatigue. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, even declared a climate emergency leading to the first-ever London Climate Action Week in July.

We think it’s time to focus on the change for good that is happening as individuals come together to create opportunities for change. Join us, in partnership with the Sustainability Hub on the 19th November in Holborn, London for an uplifting evening of collaborative action, inspiring stories from change-makers creating a positive impact on our planet and an opportunity to mingle and share stories alongside drinks and nibbles.

Expect to learn, be inspired, feel empowered and leave with a plan on how we can make a difference together.


The evening will be in 2 parts 

1) Speakers

A 10-minute introduction by our Head of Partnerships, Shosh Shetty at Bagboard. 3 x 10-minute speakers talking about the work that they do to promote sustainability and happier world, followed by a 20-minute Q&A panel.

The confirmed speakers are:

It all started with the idea to build something meaningful with the help of an app. Each time you watch a socially responsible advertisement, the money generated will be used to plant trees. Their dream is to plant 100,000 trees in 3 years and 1 million in 5 years.
