Creative Conscience is currently holding its first Creative Change Makers Conference on how creativity can solve social and environment challenges. Creative Conscience, a charity that inspires designers and creative thinkers to apply their talents to socially valuable projects, will run the conference over four consecutive days in London until Saturday 8 February.

The international fundraising event will connect the best creative minds in industry and education who share a vision to build a fairer, healthier and more sustainable world. Speakers including Sir Jonathon Porritt, Sian Sutherland (Plastic Planet) and Professor Lawrence Zeegen will be sharing examples of projects and creativity that have built, and can build, positive change.

The Creative Change Makers Conference explores specific themes each day. Yesterday, at The Design Museum, attendees explored the impact of design and creativity on mental health and wellbeing. Today’s conference will take place at Havas KX whilst day three will be at Ravensbourne on the Greenwich Peninsula. On both days attendees will consider how the creative industries influence social and environmental issues. Finally, day four, taking place at Ravensbourne, will include a half-day workshop on how creative thinking can be used to build social and environmental impact, led by the Founder and CEO of Creative Conscience, Chrissy Levett, and Naresh Ramchandani, Founder of Do The Green Thing and Partner at Pentagram.

Throughout the four day conference, there will be several key note speeches from some of the best minds in the creative industry, including non-profit organisations and leading educators. Environmentalist and acclaimed writer Sir Jonathan Porritt, Sevra Davis (British Council), designer Anthony Burrell, Nicole Yershon (The NY Collective), Sian Sutherland (Plastic Planet) and Stephanie Mills (Cite Design Architects) are a handful of the acclaimed experts appearing at this event.

We cannot wait to see the success of the conference and whole heartedly support the message behind it, and the changes and conversations Creative Conscience encourages.
