The last month has been another of planning and action across the Partnership.
In late April came the very welcome news that the UK government would be supporting Bristol's European Green Capital year with funding of £7M - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-bristol-27150357.
The funds will be managed by the Bristol 2015 Company, and include provision for a Grass Roots Catalyst fund, which the Partnership is helping to shape. The details of the fund will be announced shortly, and we will make sure you all hear about it!
Following hot on the heels of the funding announcement was the second Partnership Gathering of 2014 at the Trinity Centre. Again more than 200 people - including representatives from all of the Action Groups - came to contribute and share ideas and contacts. The Partnership is becoming a thriving ecosystem where members support and add value to each other's work, and we welcome your involvement.
Now is the time to gather - in one place and one format - all of the superb ideas for the 2015 year and beyond. The Green Capital Partnership and Bristol 2015 Company have worked together to develop a short survey to capture these and we will be sharing the results across the two organisations. The survey outputs will give an idea of what is already happening, what needs support and investment, and where the action groups can drive and embed long term change across the city.
