On November 11, 2023, the renowned Barbican in the City of London will host the inaugural Earthed Summit. This initiative, which carries the banner “Our Future, Regenerated” stems from Earthed, a pioneering Nature Skills platform devoted to nurturing a global community to learn from and for Nature.
Since its phased launch in June 2023, Earthed has been paving the way to make ecosystem restoration skills, networks, and funding accessible to a broader spectrum of people. The summit marks a celebratory milestone, commemorating the next phase in Earthed’s journey.
The event, of which Plant Based News (PBN) is an impact partner, will bring together 30 experts in regeneration, alongside budding ecosystem restorers, public figures, media partners, and aligned organisations. The diversity of individuals from varying walks of life is aimed at igniting a collaborative spark to foster regenerative growth and community restoration.
“We’re so excited partnering with such an important event,” said PBN cofounder Robbie Lockie. “The climate crisis is worsening every day, and we urgently need to move toward a plant-based food system and rewild the land used by animal agriculture. It’s never been more vital for us to learn how to help the planet, and I’m so excited to hear from this incredible line-up of expert speakers.”
