The SX21 Sustainability Summit
The timing for SX21 global earth summit couldn’t be better!
With so much talk in the media about our climate change situation over the past few weeks, SX21 couldn’t come at a better time and Wasted.ie are proud to be a media partner for the event.
NEON Agency have set the bar high for this event, with so much packed into 3 days from the 21st to the 23rd of September. This event will cover every aspect of climate change, sustainability and what the future holds for our planet. The event also promises to be about innovation, inspiration, fun and education.
SX21 aims to connect the greatest minds, industry champions, start-ups, investors, public sector officials, NGOs and the academic sector to collaborate, share, learn and create for the long-term benefit of society, purpose, and planet.
According to Gavin Downes, Deputy MD Neon and Co Founder of SX21;
We also understand the power the media, advertising and communications industry holds and we want to harness that reach to really encourage mass change and a fundamental shift in how we design, work and live for the future of society and our planet. We really believe that if you want to change the world, you need to throw a better party and that’s what SX21 is all about.”
Featuring some of the world’s top brands, global thought leaders, non-profits, experts, young activists and practitioners, this will be the first event of it’s kind in Ireland. A unique selling point, according to the organisers is that they are bringing showmanship to the sustainability sector, while also causing some positive disruption to the current sustainable events sector.
Emma O’Farrell from SX21 says:
SX21 will encourage and inspire positive change across the consumer, corporate and political landscape. We value diversity and inclusivity, and we want this event to be accessible to all. We’re also bringing together a lot of strong, inspiring female speakers to ensure there is a well balanced gender mix at the event. We also want to bring youth and vibrancy to this event to bridge the gap between generations.
