We are delighted to announce that our 2019 keynote speaker will be the inspirational Mary Robinson, first woman President of Ireland and Chair of the Elders, a group of global leaders working for peace, justice and human rights.
The 2019 Ashden Awards Ceremony will be a flagship event during the first ever London Climate Action Week (LCAW).
The Awards Ceremony will be held at the Royal Geographical Society on 3 July 2019, where we will celebrate 10 organisations that are radically decarbonising the way we live, creating liveable cities and using sustainable energy for inclusive development.
Being part of LCAW gives us the chance to amplify our call for urgent action to tackle climate change. The Ceremony is just one of several events that we will be hosting during the week, including our annual Ashden Conference, investor pitching opportunities and skills matching events. It will be a chance for our winners to meet with policy makers, business leaders and financiers to talk about the problems they are facing and the action they need to scale up their work, whilst offering collective knowledge, solutions and support.
By buying a ticket for the Ashden Awards Ceremony you will be supporting us and our winners. We are stepping up our efforts in 2019 to move further, faster towards our vision of a prosperous, healthy world, transformed by sustainable energy.
Your ticket includes entrance to the Ceremony, wine and canapés afterwards and a chance to meet all the winners, talk about their work in more detail and mingle with 500 other sustainable energy enthusiasts and all-round brilliant people.
Ashden is at the beginning of a new three-year strategy that will allow us to make a step-change in our impact. Find out more about our Strategy and Mission here.
