Overview

The Black & Green Ambassadors programme exists to connect, empower and celebrate diverse leadership and community action on environmental issues in Bristol and beyond; challenging perceptions, creating new opportunities and working towards ensuring the environmental movement is inclusive and representative of all communities.

Co-delivered by Ujima Radio and Bristol Green Capital Partnership.

Update October 2022

Programme partners, Bristol Green Capital Partnership and Ujima Radio CIC, are incredibly proud of the achievements of the Black & Green Ambassadors over the last 2 years.

The world has changed significantly since the programme started, first with a pilot in 2017 and then with a successful bid to the National Lottery Community Fund in January 2020 for the upscaled programme. Amongst other issues a global pandemic and the current cost of living crisis have had impacts on the context in which this programme exists and explores issues of environmental justice. The programme team and Ambassadors have consistently adapted to this rapidly changing context and have continued conversations reflecting these important themes with communities across Bristol.

However, as Year 2 of the programme draws to a close, both programme partners have identified a need to pause, reflect and carefully consider the future of Black & Green Ambassadors programme structure and future, and how we can best support the programme’s mission to “connect, empower and celebrate diverse leadership and community action on environmental issues in Bristol and beyond”, ensuring that learnings inform any future programmes.

We will share the next steps as soon as we can. You can also listen to the radio shows from Year One and Year Two Ambassadors here, covering topics from energy to finance.

We’d like to thank the year 1 and 2 Ambassadors, Asia, Roy, Olivia, Ruth, Miss Divine and Rosina for their brilliant efforts and everyone else who has been involved in supporting the project to date, including the National Lottery Community Fund, Year 1 and Year 2 sponsors, Bristol City Council, members of the steering group, Ujima Radio CIC board and staff and BGCP’s board and staff.
