An evidence based, digital approach to sustainability and land management

Come and hear about how 3ADAPT, sustainability consultancy, are taking a holistic approach to sustainability. Using the Six Capitals approach, supporting a variety of organisations including land owners, local authorities, utilities companies, universities and museums to help build decarbonisation plans and adapt to climate change. Hear about how they are launching Landarna, the world’s first platform to assess, inform and report the holistic impact of land opportunities, enabling more people to make more sustainable land use decisions.


Sara is an experienced project lead and consultant with over 10 years’ climate change and sustainability experience. Sara recently joined 3ADAPT as an Associate Director to support the organisation’s growth in developing net zero strategies across public and private clients and roll out the Landarna platform. Sara is also a Trustee for climate action charity Possible and is a mentor supporting young women into green careers through Catalyse Change CIC.

Listening to nature

Biodiversity is declining in many parts of the world and both the private and public sectors are starting to invest more in restoration. But what works and how do investors know if the right biodiversity returns are being delivered?

Wilder Sensing is a cloud based platform that uses audio and AI to identify what’s living in a landscape – what species are present and how the species mix changes over time – both through the seasons and year over year. This talk will explore how we can use this is practice and explore a local case study.


Geoff has had a deep passion for nature since childhood. He was a bird ringer and Trustee of Bristol Avon Rivers Trust. He’s worked as a geologist, software engineer, management consultant and sales in marketing director for companies such as EY, IBM and Oracle.
