Set within the magnificent architecture of the British Museum, where historical meets contemporary, Conservation International hosted their annual directors dinner and conference. With inspiring speakers and panel discussions by the likes of Stella McCartney and Idris Elba - both ambassadors for Conservation International - the event sparked positivity and drive in their mission to "empower societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity and in protecting our natural environment".
Guests were invited into the Egyptian Gallery for welcome drinks, followed by dinner and talks in the British Museum Great Hall. In keeping with the values held strongly by Conservation International, the design for the dinner prioritised natural, sustainable and reused materials for the tables and table decorations.
Bespoke wooden tray gardens for living plants were arranged as the centrepieces, and trees were crafted from branches and offcuts surrounding the tables for a more intimate style dinner. A projection of the earth was the focus of the evening, a consistent symbol for the great importance this charity supports through its innovative projects.
A modest yet meaningful design to encourage reflection, motivate change and build connections.
