On Monday 15 November, Wildscreen hosted our first hybrid event which focused on communicating the key topics from the UN's COP26 summit in Glasgow. 'Communicating COP26' welcomed delegates from across 21 countries to the stunning Bristol Harbour Hotel both in-person and through a livestream to our virtual event platform.
With over 25 speakers representing a variety of sectors, from finance to filmmaking, charity to conservation, we hosted a full day of panel sessions, interviews and screenings delving into vital topics around the climate crisis and providing concrete actions which delegates could take to protect the planet.
We collaborated with innovative solutions such as carbon offsetting charity ecolibrium's carbon calculato rand closed-circuit reusable cup system CanCan, with whom delegates saved 7.59kg of carbon in waste over the course of the day!

Wildscreen also partnered with If Not Us Then Who to curate a unique photography exhibition showcasing artwork from indigenous peoples across the world around the theme of Community. The exhibition was on display at Communicating COP26, with photographer Elizabeth Swanson Andi at the event, and was sponsored by Adam & Jessica Sweidan and Redcliffe Imaging.
9 out of 10 delegates are 'very likely' to recommend a Wildscreen event to a friend or colleague. We’re looking forward to welcoming you all to our fantastic events in 2022!
