InterClimate Network
Your Green Future 2012 Bristol event
9am-3.15pm
13 &14 March 2012
UWE’s Exhibition and Conference Centre

The organisers are looking for a representative (or a couple) from the Bristol Food Network to take on a team within the Jobs Change Workshops, to act as mentors and judges.

During the workshops, teams of students will design a product for a business, such as a ready meal. Each team will have to think about issues such as where the product will be manufactured, how it is produced, the materials used, its impact on the environment, the supply chain and where profits distributed.

Students will be supported by a range of professional ‘mentors’ who will be able to support them in their process.

A short book about the project can be viewed online at www.blurb.com/books/2568786

The format of the workshops:

  • Students, in teams (about 6-8 teams per session) will design a product for a business, such as a ready meal.
  • Each team will have to think about issues such as where the product will be manufactured, how it is produced, the materials used, its impact on the environment, the supply chain and where profits distributed.
  • Each team will link the need for the product to the wider issues – for instance over consumption, resource depletion, throw away culture.
  • Students will be supported by a range of professional ‘mentors’ who will be able to support them in their process – about 6-8 mentors needed per session.
  • At the end of the session students will present their product to the other students and the mentors – who will vote for the best product.
