Bristol Green Capital Partnership is hosting a special ‘Going for Gold’ Green Mingle on 2nd May from 5.30pm – 7.30pm at The Kitchen, Silver Street The Green Mingle is Bristol Green Capital Partnership’s regular monthly networking event, and in May they’ll be focusing on Bristol’s ambition to be a Gold Award Sustainable Food City.
Bristol Food Network, Bristol City Council and Bristol Green Capital Partnership have been working hard behind the scenes to plan Bristol’s bid to be a Gold Award Sustainable Food City. They’re now gearing up to launch this ambition, with a new Going for Gold website due to in the next couple of weeks.
Bristol is currently one of three Silver Award cities in the UK, and Bristol and Brighton are now going to work towards Gold. The Sustainable Food Cities programme encourages and recognises positive changes cities make to their food systems and culture, and Bristol Green Capital Partnership will be calling on individuals, organisations and the food sector in Bristol to work together to help the city achieve Gold.
The Green Mingle offers an opportunity to hear more about the initiative and learn how to get involved, in addition to networking with other members and stakeholders working or interested in sustainability. It’s free to attend and there’s no need to book, and there will be local drinks and snacks to sample.
