Green & Black AmbassadorsBack to Projects
The Green & Black Ambassadors is a pilot initiative that ran from Oct 2016 to Sept 2017, seeking to address the exclusion of Black and Minority Ethnic communities in Bristol’s environmental sustainability efforts. In this initial pilot we worked with ambassadors Zakiya Mckenzie and Jasmine Ketibuah-Foley, who received training and support in order to:
- Conduct Community Action Research: to explore why exclusion exists in the sustainability agenda, and propose means for overcoming issues.
- Collate Case Studies: to help establish learning lessons from local exemplars of inclusive green initiatives
- Create Media and monthly Radio shows: to share learning and experiences, raising the profile of the Green and Black agenda
- Undergo Leadership Development: receiving leadership training and mentoring
- Advocate for ‘disruptive’ constructive challenge: better connect environmental and social justice, and promote engagement with more diverse communities.
You can listen to the radio shows on Soundcloud
