The summit featured leading scientists, government ministers, CEOs, youth champions, celebrity climate activists and people in remote communities driving climate change initiatives every day.

I supported Partnerships for Forests (a project of The Palladium Group) in delivering a series of interactive virtual workshops for their network of project developers, plus a high profile panel webinar focused on building resilience through nature-positive investment. The webinar was viewed live by over 200 people.

Development and Climate (D&C) Days at COP
From 2014 to 2019 I was the event and logistics manager of this informal fringe event alongside the annual Conference of Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention of Climate Change (UNFCCC). The 2-day event, hosted by the International Institute of Environment and Development (IIED) with the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, took place in Paris, Bonn, Marrakesh, Katowice and Madrid, featuring out-of-the-box ideas like flashmobs, virtual reality and experimental cooking!

What my clients say
Shaun Hazeldine - Head of Innovations, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
"Amy led the project coordination of our first global, virtual summit - the largest enterprise of it's kind that we've ever hosted; and it's no exagerration to say we could not have done it without her. Amy is highly organised and structed, and was able to meet the many challenges that arose. Her deep experience at event management was essential - she was able to foresee the challenges we would face and put in place structures and processes to help us address them. Amy has an extremely strong attention to detail and kept the whole team on track. She was highly respected by everyone involved, and if I find myself doing anything this challenging again, I'll be calling Amy first."
Lucy Garrett - Manager,
Partnerships for Forests, Palladium International
