Beyond “Business-as-Usual”: From   Green Swan to Green Opportunities

“Can you create business, social and economic opportunities

while mitigating environmental impacts?”

With the climate-induced disasters and global advocacy movements bringing climate to the forefront of public discourse, citizens, investors, entrepreneurs, and policymakers are starting to think beyond “business-as-usual” and explore cross-cutting opportunities for transformation. 

The Enspire Summit, an all-day event showcasing TED-talk style presentations by thought leaders from all areas of sustainability, aims to inspire the interdisciplinary collaboration and critical conversations needed for a sustainable and just future .


In the application, you will be asked to provide a summary of your proposed presentation (10-15 minutes), which can be on any topic related to promoting collaboration, inspiration, and innovation in the sustainability field. If you have a unique technology solution, a cutting-edge project, or simply a passion for transformative change, we would love to hear your story. Please submit your applications by May 31st.

Upon receipt of your application, EIN members will connect with you by mid-June regarding the status of your application. We will also schedule a brief phone interview to confirm your interest and availability, and answer any questions you may have. You will also have access to a professional coach in advance of the conference to help shape a successful presentation.

We look forward to receiving your application.  Feel free to reach out to with any questions.
