Bristol Green Capital Partnership is pleased to announce that Healthy City Week 2017 will take place from 7 – 14 October, with the support of Bristol Health Partners.

This year’s programme will provide a range of opportunities to share learnings and explore the intersections between the health and sustainability communities in addressing environmental challenges. Events will include:

  • A participatory Healthy City Week Partnership Gathering and open space workshop on 12 Oct at Trinity Centre (save the date!)
  • Networking events including a healthy ‘Green Mingle on 5 Oct (5.30 – 7.30pm) at The Kitchen and a business breakfast with Go Green (date tbc)
  • An exciting new ‘Fun Palace collaboration on 7 & 8 Oct– a weekend of collaborative health, arts, science and community events in Avonmouth and Barton Hill
  • A day of wellbeing at The New Room in Broadmead (14 Oct)
  • Talks and workshops from Bristol Health Partners and the Health Integration Teams, and groups and organisations from the Bristol Green Capital Partnership

Although Healthy City Week is unable to run an open submission process to create a broader programme in 2017, the activities this year will present many opportunities to connect, collaborate and help us to collectively pave the way for a bigger and more ambitious Healthy City Week in 2018.
