In order to explore how to achieve the ambitious targets set out in Bristol’s One City Plan, Bristol Green Capital Partnership teamed up with Bristol Water and Impact to deliver an event that would bring business leaders from the area together in pursuit of collective leadership action.
The event aimed to provide an opportunity for a diverse mix of organisational leaders to collaborate on supporting and empowering the city's citizens, consumers and employees to be more sustainable, now and in the future.
Attendees took part in a series of practical workshops that introduced them to the capacities that are essential for leadership action and gave them the opportunity to put them into practice. They also heard inspirational stories about what some organisations are already doing and explored what else is needed to reach the city's ambitious goals. Collaboratively they created a vision for Bristol's future citizens and explored how they, as organisational leaders, could collectively act to support the citizens to live this vision.
As a result of the event, 35 people from 24 organisations committed to 35 new collaborative actions.
