GreenBristol is delighted to hear that its printed map is shortlisted for the first Green Awards out of hundreds of entries. The map is in the category Best Direct Mail B2C. The winners of each of the eighteen categories will be announced at a gala dinner to be held at London's Guildhall on November 29th.
GreenBristol were invited to attend Brislington Community Partnership's open day. Ivor and Steve met various members of of BCP and discussed the various ways of creating green maps. Thanks to Bristol City Council's Sustainable City Team for organising this event.
Neighbourhood Solutions commissions GB to produce a printed green map of its area - Barton Hill, Redfield, Lawrence Hill, The Dings, Upper Easton, Newtown - for inclusion in its Welcome Pack. This is to be distributed to all 4,200 households in the area. GB works with Claire Cunningham to design the printed map.
We submitted a proposal to the BBC's Untold West for a five minute film about the potential for geothermal energy in East Bristol. This is a competition to uncover little-known stories from the West that are unusual and haven't been broadcast previously.
GreenBristol were invited to contribute to Electric December 2006. We partnered with Martin Hanstead of Knowle West Media Centre to create an online game around Climate Change. The game is aimed at 14-19 year olds and is fun and educational. Clare Cunningham contributed to graphic design. All will be revealed this December!
