Science tells us that we have a decade within which to make unprecedented and far-reaching changes to all aspects of society. Decisions made in the coming years will be critical in determining our future. 

Tickets now available for JB’s 2020 summit, titled We Make Tomorrow: creative climate action in a time of crisis – we invite you to join us.


This provocative, intergenerational and action-focused event will bring creative and cultural leaders and institutions together with funders, grassroots activists, policy-makers and the scientific community to explore what creativity, leadership and innovation means in the context of climate and ecological emergency, ahead of the crucial COP26 climate talks.

How do we build the future we want?

Taking place on Wednesday 26th February 2020 at the prestigious Royal Geographical Society London – where Julie’s Bicycle held one of its first events for the music industry more than 10 years ago – this event will bring together high-profile expert speakers and facilitators with an audience of over 300 from across the UK and beyond. Together we will ask: What will the world be like in 2030, and what can the creative and cultural community do now to push us closer to the future we want?  

This day-long event will look at the political, demographic, economic and social forces driving our changing climate and devastating loss of nature, and explore how the arts and cultural sector can be galvanised to move us towards net-zero whilst laying foundations for a more connected and just future society.

Creative climate partnerships

We are delighted to be partnering with the General Ecology project at the Serpentine Galleries, who are curating artist-led performative interventions and workshops; and Sam Lee and The Nest Collective who are curating musical performances and walkabouts throughout the day. This cross-disciplinary collaborative project will feature many more friends and contributors who will be announced in the new year. Sign up to for JB news to find out more.

You can expect interactive sessions, performances, high profile keynotes, and cross-disciplinary discussion. As a participant of this event, we would like you to bring your vision, experience and expertise to help shape and contribute towards the day. 

We will be announcing further details very soon. But for now, don’t miss out – book your ticket at the early bird rate (only available until 3rd January)!


This event is run in partnership with the Arts Council England as part of the environmental programme.
