Event description
Join us for this online interactive power hour to discuss how businesses, communities & individuals can collectively build a better future.

About this Event

Welcome to our “Evolving Cities” series of power-hour online discussions, kindly sponsored by Network members TLT.

Part 2 - Working Together: Businesses and Communities

We need to create greener cities which are fit for the future and are places where people can live, work and play without negatively impacting their surroundings or the environment. In order to do this, there needs to be real collaboration between businesses, communities and individuals to change the conversation to one which is focused around sustainability. By collaborating with each other we can share best practice and look to create real change that will shape greener cities.

In this hour session we will look at how to open up those conversations, what role business and community leaders need to play in shaping the agenda, and how every individual plays an equally important role in creating a sustainable future.

In preparation for World Environment Day, we are excited to hold this Evolving Cities online series in partnership with Network members TLT.

We are welcoming Bristol & Bath Regional Capital/City Funds and Investing for Good, and Network members TLT, Resource Futures, Grassroot Communities and University of Bristol to take part in this panel discussion.
