Welcome to Earthrise, an innovation summit like no other…

Responding to the greatest threat to peace and security that we’ve encountered in modern times, Earthrise Summit’s mission is to bring entrepreneurship, urgency and action to the climate crisis. This is for industry leaders and their teams who want to expand their knowledge, share their perspectives and walk away with actionable ideas. Our goal is to inspire co-creation between founders, students, politicians, creatives, technologists, policy makers and SME’s that will generate immediate, meaningful action.

Earthrise Summit 2022 | Urban Futures

55% of the world's population are now living in urban areas and The UN predicts  this number to rise to 68% by 2050. We need to rethink the impact of urban existence and innovate - fast. Which is why this year’s Earthrise Summit will put a specific focus on the ways in which we can use our urban centres and cities to support a more sustainable future.
