Sustainable Food Project Get Together – Going for Gold
July 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+1| Free
Bristol is “Going for Gold” as a sustainable food city and we’re inviting you to find out more and meet others involved in sustainable food. Take action to change food in Bristol for good. Through city-wide action, Bristol is aiming to become a Gold Sustainable Food City.
We’d like you to share your projects (or ideas) and find others with similar interests, you’ll have 3–5 minutes each to present.
This will be a bring and share pot luck, please bring something vegetarian or vegan (clearly labelled) to share with others if you can.
The event will run 6–8pm and we’ll give projects the opportunity to talk briefly about their work, as well as some facilitated idea sharing.
What is Going for Gold?
‘Going for Gold’ is Bristol’s ambition to become a Gold Sustainable Food City and make positive changes to our city’s food system. In 2016, based on evidence from over 120 organisations, Bristol became only the second city to be awarded a Silver Sustainable Food Cities Award. Three cities now have Silver, none has Gold… yet.
A Gold Award would recognise a collective effort to change food for good in our city. It would celebrate an altogether stronger food system; one that promotes health for our citizens, protects our soils, helps wildlife to flourish, gives workers a fair livelihood, minimises greenhouse gas emissions, and allows local communities and businesses to thrive.
What is Sustainable Food Cities?
The Sustainable Food Cities Network is a collaboration between the Soil Association, Sustain and Food Matters. They support and celebrate cities that are making positive changes to their food systems and culture, helping them to share good practice and explore solutions to common challenges.
