Turning the tide on plastic pollution

This year we have a wonderful new venue for Galapagos Day, the centrally located 1 Wimpole Street, home of the Royal Society of Medicine. Just 5 minutes’ walk from Bond Street and Oxford Circus stations, the intimate but impressive space includes a 298-seater auditorium, glass-ceilinged atrium and accessible facilities.

Our theme for 2024 is Turning the Tide on Plastic Pollution, and we are putting together an exciting roster of speakers to discuss both our work in Galapagos and global efforts to agree a legally binding plastics treaty at the United Nations.

As well as enjoying stimulating talks from our speakers, Galapagos Day is an opportunity to speak to our staff and project partners, network with like-minded individuals, check out our Galapagos photography exhibition, meet our corporate partners and buy Galapagos merchandise including Christmas cards, wildlife adoption packs and calendars.

Tickets are on sale at a special early bird price of £25 (£10 for students) until 31 May (£30/£15 for students thereafter). The ticket price includes your first drink at the bar. Capacity at the venue is limited, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

We are also looking for a sponsor to help us cover the costs of holding the event. If you or your company are interested in supporting us in this way, please contact [email protected].

Proceeds from this event will help to fund our conservation work in Galapagos.
