Global Goals Centre Installation for COP26
An exciting new installation from the Global Goals Centre will be opening on 1st November in the Glass Room at Bristol Beacon (new name for Colston Hall). Offering inspiration and hope whilst world leaders gather for the global climate conference COP26 in Glasgow, the multimedia installation features a unique artwork created by local mural artist, Farrah Fortnum
It also showcases the 17 local heroes nominated for their work to help reach the Sustainable Development Goals, brought to life by the Bristol 17 campaign.
Suitable for all ages and free to enter, you can visit the installation from 2nd-10th November (excl 6th) 9am-6pm.
Look out for the Bristol 17 films playing on the giant screen in Millenium Square! And do share the films on social media #Bristol17 or watch them on the Global Goals Centre website
Posters of the 17 heroes will also be on display around the city during COP26.

New Projects in Development!
We have commissioned a great creative team of artists and developers to build Threads, a series of online mini games about Fast Fashion which we hope to launch in early January 2022.
We are also working with local refugee artists to develop our Voices project, an exploration of migration and asylum through cultural exchange.
We are offering schools workshops on both Threads and Voices for KS2 and 3 – to express an interest for your school please email our Education Lead: manu a_t globalgoalscentre d_o_t org

Young Advisors Group launched
We are delighted to be working with a talented group of Young Advisors to develop our work and give voice and agency to local young people who are passionate about climate and social justice. Our first meeting in October was full of creativity and hope. We’re excited to have their input in GGC.
Please support our work!
To overcome the climate crisis and inequality, we need to inspire many more people to change behaviour and push for faster change.
Help us continue our creative output or support a specific project - can this be part of your positive response to COP26? We would so value your support.
