POSTPONED: Earth Optimism 2020

25th April 2020

In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak the CCI Earth Optimism 2020 organising team has decided to postpone our 25 April event. We very much regret the inconvenience and disappointment this creates for so many people, but feel it would be irresponsible to carry on in the current climate of concern and uncertainty.

We were expecting more than 50 speakers from around the country, 200 stallholders and volunteers, and thousands of visitors on the day. The health and safety of everyone involved is our priority, which guided this very difficult decision.

Thanks to all our contributors, 25 April promised to be a wonderful day. We still aim to capture that enthusiasm and optimism, and together with our partners around the world we are now exploring other ways of celebrating conservation success. In the meantime if you have any questions, please get in touch with us at or send us a message via our social channels.

With sincere apologies, and best wishes,

The Earth Optimism 2020 team
