In this event we ask, how we can create a collaborative entrepreneurial ecosystem in the UK and beyond to maximise our impact, deliver on the UN SDGs and ensure our long-term ability to flourish?
SDG 3 calls on us to ‘ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages”. Ensuring a prosperous future—and reaching economic, environmental and social goals—depends on having a thriving and healthy human population. Yet, the combined pressures of urbanisation, the changing nature of work and air pollution are jeopardising our long-term ability to flourish.
In this event, we ask what can entrepreneurs do to transform our work and living conditions for healthier and happier lives?
SDG 12 calls on us to "Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns”. Yet, our current consumption patterns and demands of our planet are jeopardising our long-term ability to flourish. What role do entrepreneurs have in changing our unsustainable practices, habits and values through innovative business models and new ideas?
SDG 5, which is to "achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls" is the most important goal for tackling climate change. Empowered and educated women have more control over their lives.

What can entrepreneurs do to build a future of clean and affordable energy for all? This event will explore the business models and ideas that are making a clean energy future inevitable.
