Why Attend?

The Earthed Summit celebrates the transformative power of ecosystem restoration and our human potential to restore nature. Together, we will learn how we can all actively participate in regenerating our local areas – whether that’s a windowsill, balcony, garden, disused community space, farm, river, coastline or forest. Then, we will head over to Maroto for the afterparty with music, dancing and joy. Earthed exists to build and support a peer-driven, mass mobilised ecosystem restoration movement. Join us.

Rakesh Dhall Rakesh Dhall

I’ve always wanted to grow my own food but as I live in a city I never thought I could. The courses on earthed are so simple and easy to follow. I’ve loved learning new skills and sharing them with my friends and family.

Sophie Shnapp, Ibiza Sophie Shnapp, Ibiza

Through Earthed, I learn from global leaders in ecosystem restoration, and connect with like-minded people to problem solve and share stories. It gives so much, for such a small monthly donation. I really can’t recommend it highly enough.

Kesewa Aboah, London Kesewa Aboah, London

Sometimes it feels as if even though you want to participate in all the productive and good that you know you can do, you have no idea where, when or how to start. Thankfully we now have Earthed. It’s the simplest of ideas that make the most impact. A truly engaging and thoughtful site, I haven’t and I won’t stop using it.

I cannot express enough how impactful and transformative the Earthed Platform has been in my journey to combat climate change. What sets Earthed apart is its strong dedication to fostering an interconnected community of environmental advocates, each bringing forth their unique perspectives and innovative solutions to address one of humanity's greatest challenges through its incredible courses.

Octavia Calthorpe, Somerset Octavia Calthorpe, Somerset

I always wanted to take action in healing our planet, but felt overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. When I found Earthed I found the courses easy to digest and before I knew it, I was actively participating in restoring my local environment.
