Green and Black
Inclusiveness and environmental awareness are key concerns for Bristol now and in the future. The Green and Black initiative aims to kickstart a long term series of activities and relationships with Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities around the legacy of the European Green Capital year. This action will focus on developing young BAME ambassadors to raise environmental awareness in their communities and more broadly around the city. It is intended that the programme will engage the ‘future city’ academics at the universities and act as a catalyst for one or more corollary projects in both the Impact and Research agendas. One larger scale project is hoped to emerge that the partners can take to an external funder (e.g. Esmée Fairbairn) for support.
