Going for Gold: Making Bristol a truly sustainable food city

May 17 , 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Food is central to all our lives – it enables our bodies to function, is a great connector to culture and community, and can be a source of enormous pleasure.

However, changes to our food system over the last few decades are having a devastating impact on our health, our environment, and the places we live.

 

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Bristol is already a recognised leader in innovative food-related projects and practices and is one of only three Silver Award Sustainable Food Cities in the UK. It is now hoping to become the first Gold Award Sustainable Food City, but to achieve this the whole city will need to be involved.

To launch the ‘Going for Gold’ initiative, Bristol Green Capital Partnership is hosting a Partnership Gathering on 17th May in collaboration with The Bristol Food Network and supported by Fresh Range.

Join us to hear more about Bristol’s Gold Award ambition, learn about how your organisation can take part, and about the benefits changes to food practices can bring to your organisation, your colleagues, and the city.

This is an opportunity for your organisation to help Bristol become a truly sustainable food city, and ensure it is an inspiring example to other cities across the UK and beyond.

Places are limited so book your place soon.

Programme:

Speakers will include Asher Craig, Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for Communities, Equalities & Public Health and Rich Osborn, the Founder of Fresh Range.

It will also be a very practical event, and the aim is for attendees to create a Good Food Action Plan of the changes your organisation can make as a contribution to the Going for Gold ambition. The full programme will be announced soon.
