What is the Black & Green Ambassadors programme?

The Black & Green Ambassadors for Bristol is a three-year programme that will recruit, mentor and support nine emerging leaders – representative of Bristol’s Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities – to work between diverse communities, businesses, other organisations and individuals on issues of equality, diversity, inclusion and the environment.
