Event description
Join us to celebrate businesses that are standing out as leaders in sustainability.

About this event

The Gala Dinner will be an exciting addition to the Festival of Sustainable Business, including the Future Leap Sustainable Awards Ceremony, aligning with Bristol's One City plans.

The evening will celebrate businesses that are standing out as leaders in sustainability and are recognised for their contributions towards people, profit and the planet. All attendees will leave feeling inspired and motivated to progress their own sustainability journeys!

The awards categories include Sustainable Buildings, Communicating the Climate and Ecological Emergency, the Natural Environment, Sustainable Travel and Transport and Reduction of Waste and Consumption.

With inspiring speakers and organisations taking the lead in addressing the climate and ecological emergency, this is a great opportunity to network, learn and celebrate.

The dinner will begin with a drinks reception, followed by a gourmet 3 course dinner, prepared using locally and sustainably-sourced produce.

Martin Kiszko, Green Poet

Martin Kiszko is the ‘UK’s green poet’ — a moniker given to him by audiences around the world. His one man-show, based on his two books Green Poems for a Blue Planet and Verse for the Earth, has been performed from Los Angeles to China, Dubai to India, and from the Edinburgh Fringe to the Royal Albert Hall. The books and show are illustrated by Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park.

Most recently he wrote and published the world’s first epic eco-poem King Frank & the Knights of the Ecoquest. The poem has been broadcast in fifteen episodes on Fun Kids radio station and stars singer Toyah Willcox. Martin’s new fun collection of poetry, Inversebrates, has also been published.

In 2015 Martin was Poet in Residence for Bristol European Green Capital year. In 2016 he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Bristol for his work. As a composer of music for film and television, he has composed over 200 scores and has released nine albums with Europe’s finest orchestras.
