Hot Coffee, Hot Topic: A whole city approach to healthier people and places

About this Event

Thanks for your interest in taking part in this Hot Coffee, Hot Topic session.

This event will take place on Wednesday 5th February from 10:00am until 11:15am in the Conference Hall, City Hall, Bristol BS1 5TR.

At this Hot Coffee, Hot Topic we will explore the Alive Bristol programme, a whole city approach to healthier people and places.

We are calling on the whole city to work with us to help achieve our vision: Bristol is a city where people are a healthy weight, with an environment that makes it easier for everyone, regardless of age, background, circumstance or where they live, to access affordable, sustainable and healthy food, eat healthier diets and live active lifestyles.

Bristol is recognised for its vibrant food culture and provision of sport and physical activities. However, there are high levels of unhealthy weight in the city, with large inequalities between the most and least deprived areas. The causes of unhealthy weight are complex, so a coordinated ‘whole city’ approach is needed. This will involve collective action across the local authority, NHS, education settings, food businesses, leisure and sport providers, workplaces and communities.

Bristol City Council is adopting the Local Government Declaration on Healthy Weight on 5th February, supported by Partner Pledges from local NHS partners. This formalises our commitment to promoting healthy weight and implementing policies which influence the whole city. We are also supporting Going for Gold, the city-wide effort to change food in Bristol for good, and be recognised as a Gold Sustainable Food City by the end of 2020.

During the session, the Public Health team will outline the Alive Bristol programme, before inviting discussion and contributions from attendees. They hope to gain the support of partners across all sectors and areas of the city to work together to deliver long-term change through a new healthy weight alliance.

Book your ticket now to be a part of the discussion. You don't need to work in an area linked to the topic to attend; Hot Coffee, Hot Topic sessions are relaxed and informal and allow any colleague to be part of an interesting discussion. Whoever you are any whatever your role, you are welcome to join us.

Please contact mayor@bristol.gov.uk to let us know if you have any access requirements.
