Planet Matters: Brands Against Calamity /
We need to get serious about sustainability. Join us – in person! – on 9 June at VUE Leicester Square to find out which brands are leading the way, what agencies can do to galvanise change, and how you can make an impact on the biggest challenge facing humanity
Remember the climate emergency? While inflation and the war in Ukraine dominate the news agenda, the health of the planet remains the defining issue of our era. It is also the biggest catalyst for change across the business landscape – change the advertising industry can and must galvanise.
Join us – in person! – on 9 June at VUE Leicester Square to find out which brands are leading the way, what agencies can do to accelerate progress, and how you can make an impact on the biggest crisis facing humanity.
Our insight-filled half-day event (9am-1pm BST) will showcase inspiring and effective campaigns, collaborations and initiatives from companies that want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. The Contagious team will share their pick of the best in climate communications, their perspective on beacon brands demonstrating leadership in sustainability and the innovations that will help drive change. Our featured experts will provide first-hand experience of what it takes to create change in legacy organisations, how to deliver campaigns that influence consumer behaviour, and how the advertising industry itself can – and must – evolve to meet the challenge of climate change.
Whether you’re anxious or angry about the impact of climate change, our industry helped to create this situation. It’s time to help – REALLY HELP – sort it out.

Innovation Salvation? / There’s more to creativity than advertising, and this session will focus on the innovators seeking solutions to some of our toughest consumption-related problems. Be inspired. Be amazed. Help them scale!
