Take part in Bristol’s Going for Gold ambition

Share

Bristol Green Capital Partnership is delighted to be coordinating Bristol’s ambition to be a Gold Sustainable Food City, along with Bristol Food Network and Bristol City Council, and to be able to share the new Going for Gold website

Changes to the city’s food system are vital if we are to achieve the Partnership’s vision of a sustainable city with a high quality of life for all. For this to be achieved, and for Bristol to be awarded Gold, it will require the whole city to come together, including organisations of all sizes and sectors.

We therefore hope Partnership members will get involved, and there are a number of ways for you and your organisation to support the bid:

  • Take action! Either as an individual, or by getting your workplace or community involved, and report your progress on the website;
  • If you work for a large organisation, consider identifying a ‘Going for Gold’ contact point to coordinate action from your organisation;
  • Help us spread the word – can you promote Going for Gold through your networks or in your community? If you would like help in doing this, please let us know and we can provide a toolkit;
  • Sign up to the first Going for Gold Business Breakfast, with a focus on Food Waste, taking place on 22nd May at Smith & Williamson.

Several organisations have already generously supported the initiative, and in particular we would like to thank Essential Trading, the Going for Gold partner, and GENeco, the Going for Gold sponsor, and the other programme supporters. Find out who they are here.

If you have any questions about Going for Gold, or would like to discuss how your organisation could get involved, please get in touch.

Click here for a Going for Gold press release issued on 8 May, with more information about the bid.
