Conservation and Environmental protection is a broad and vast subject often entangled with polarised and conflicting views. At LUSH, we support and help those fighting hard to end illegal, damaging and just downright wrong environmental practices that see some of our most cherished landscapes and special places disappear and the wildlife that wholly depends on it.
For the LUSH Summit, we've brought together a collection of people who've been busy campaigning hard in different areas, from individuals stopping the mass illegal killing of birds in the Mediterranean, activists exposing the cruel and vile 'trophy hunting' scene in North America and organisations battling to keep environmental legislation from going down the pan. So, for a whole series of inspiring talks, interactive Q&A sessions and workshops come and say hi to our conservation team!
