A snappy, sustainable and seriously tasty event (that’s not just for the ‘shortlisters’!)
Join us at the 2018 Global Good Awards ceremony, whether you’re a ‘shortlister’ or not, for a night dedicated to celebrating excellence in social impact and sustainability, a ceremony you won’t fall asleep sitting through… and a truly sustainable evening.
At the Global Good Awards, we believe in being the change you want to see in the world. That’s why we’re pushing boundaries even further to deliver a truly sustainable awards ceremony…
We strongly believe that sharing best practice helps change happen faster. So we’re opening up our event to anyone who works in responsible business and sustainability, to share what we’ve learned over the last four years.
You won’t have to endure a 3 hour award ceremony in return… Ed Gillespie’s super efficient (and belly laugh inducing) hosting wraps up the official proceedings inside 45 minutes, leaving more time to eat, drink, network, and celebrate! There will also be a snappy key-note speech from Martin Wright, who will deliver a clear, crisp and honest talk on ‘A Case for Optimism’.
We want all our guests to make most of the evening: making new connections with sustainability leaders, and leaving plenty of time to party too.
Food to delight meat-eater and vegan alike
Everything about this year’s awards ceremony will be eco-friendly: from the food to the dress-code. We’re confident our delicious, fully vegan menu will make your mouth water… And trust us, meat-eaters will NOT be disappointed. We’ve tested it on committed carnivores, vegans, and flexitarians alike!
“I’d consider switching if all vegan food tasted like the jackfruit quesadilla! It’s like smoked chicken and it’s delicious.” One judge at the tasting event.
