Susty Summit 5 Marking International Women's Day: The Women Making Waves in Climate Change
Thursday 5th March in Central London
“The one thing we need more than hope is action. Once we start to act, hope is everywhere. So instead of looking for hope, look for action. Then, and only then, hope will come.” Greta Thunberg
With a sharp rise in global natural disasters in 2019, from fires in the Amazon and Australia, heatwaves in Japan, cyclones in Mozambique and floods in Vienna, Italy, we feel the impacts of Climate change more and more everyday. We acknowledge a broken political system and turn to new emerging leaders for the action we need; the women making waves.
Women are often the best placed change agents to practically and effectively mitigate climate change, and are also disproportionately more likely to be impacted by the effects of climate change. 70% of women currently live in poverty and so are likely to be more impacted by extreme weather, but at the same time are excluded from the conversation due to existing biases including restricted land rights and lack of access to training, technology, politics and financial resources. We must unleash the knowledge and capability of women.
Join our next Susty Summit, dedicated to learning and discovering how women can drive more change, and celebrate those already acting implementing change. This will be a special one.
Your £10 ticket is redeemable on BYBI purchases at the event. It gains you access to an inspiring expert panel talk, complementary sustainable nibbles and drink.
What is The BYBI Susty Summit?
The BYBI Susty Summit is a regular event series dedicated to sustainability in beauty, personal care and beyond. Sustainability is a hugely positive yet hugely broad term that right now lacks clear definitions and guidelines. As consumers, our purchases are increasingly being driven by a want for better environmental impact, but a lack of clear information can leave us feeling confused, overwhelmed and not really knowing where to start.
The BYBI Susty Summits will tackle a sustainable subject at a time, with the aim to provide you with an open, transparent and honest picture and arm you with as much information as possible to help you make your purchasing decisions.
We’ll open up about what we’re doing at BYBI, give you the chance to ask us questions and most importantly, speak to a room full of people who are truly passionate about making change for the better.
BYBI products will also be available to test, try and buy with exclusive discounts. Tickets are first come first serve. There's a lot to discuss, so if you don’t manage to get one there are more Susty Summits to come.
