A month of exploration, celebration and forward-thinking!
The Unearthodox Learning Festival, held throughout October 2023, showcased Unearthodox's three featured projects: The Future of Conservation NGOs, Digital Disruption and the Future of Conservation, and The Future of Philanthropy for Biodiversity.
Through a series of webinars, panel discussions, and publications, the Festival connected the different initiatives to provide a holistic overview of possible futures for conservation practices.
It provided a forum for networking and collaboration, where participants engaged with sector peers, defined practical steps, and nurtured innovative ideas.
The Festival included five online learning events.
