Future Leaders: 3-day Nature Summit in Scotland

Do you consider yourself a future leader of the insurance industry? The IIL YMC and Climate Pursuits are bringing together future insurance industry leaders in a one-of-its-kind summit on a private island and wilderness haven in Scotland to learn from local experts about nature risks and opportunities.


According to the World Economic Forum, climate and environmental risks are now the most significant risks identified for the next decade. Most companies do not understand their dependencies and impacts on nature and are inadequately accounting for nature-related risks and opportunities. Nature is now no longer a corporate social responsibility issue but a strategic risk management issue.

Only by learning about nature in the field, will we truly appreciate and be inspired to protect, restore and leverage the full potential of nature-based solutions to mitigate and adapt to climate change, whilst also restoring our ecosystems.

You’ll connect with other insurance industry leaders over hearty meals and activities like sea kayaking and wildlife watching. This is not only an investment in your professional development but also a way to positively impact rural economies by engaging local experts and communities.

Each place includes a contribution to the Scottish Wildlife Trust, furthering your commitment to conservation and nature-based solutions.
