Black and Green Ambassadors for BristolBack to Projects
Black and Green Ambassadors for Bristol 2020 - 23
Over three years, this programme will recruit, mentor and support nine Ambassadors – emerging leaders with environmental and social justice ambitions – to work between Bristol’s diverse communities, businesses, organisations and individuals on issues of environmental sustainability, equality, diversity and inclusion.
The forthcoming programme, supported by The National Lottery Community Fund and co-delivered by Ujima Radio and Bristol Green Capital Partnership, will build on the work of the pioneering pilot project which began in 2016, following Bristol’s year as European Green Capital. The programme will support Ambassadors, representative of Bristol’s Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, to develop and deliver an extensive programme of activities intended to enable bold and inclusive action towards a more sustainable Bristol.
Recruitment for Ambassadors is expected to open late July 2020, with the programme beginning in September. We are seeking businesses and organisations to become supporters of the programme as we move into this exciting next phase – find further details below.
Apply now to become a Black & Green Ambassador for Bristol! Deadline for applications for Year one of the programme is 27 August 2020 – read more about how to apply.
