We’re thrilled to announce that Ujima Radio and Bristol Green Capital Partnership are looking to recruit three Ambassadors for Year 1 of the Black & Green Ambassadors programme – a 3-year programme that will mentor and support a total of nine emerging leaders to work between the city’s diverse communities of people, businesses and organisations on issues of equality, diversity, inclusion and the environment.

This programme is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and builds on a successful pilot-project which began in 2016 – read more here.

About the Ambassadorship

This programme presents a unique leadership and professional development opportunity for three Ambassadors in Year One (Sep 2020 – 2021) who will receive ongoing mentoring, skills training and support to lead and deliver a varied programme of activities to engage communities and inspire bold and inclusive action towards a green and fair future for Bristol.

This programme seeks to address environmental and racial inequalities and empower leadership from Bristol’s Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. Activities will include community-based research projects, a monthly radio show and community-development workshops – enabling Ambassdors to frame questions and gather evidence to advocate for change, identify tangible solutions and catalyse new projects. Their work will aim to showcase diverse approaches to environmental sustainability, celebrate best practice, stimulate debate and raise awareness of environmental justice issues and inequality.
