Are you excited to help deliver a vision of an environmentally sustainable and inclusive city?

The City Office is working with Bristol Green Capital Partnership to set up a new Environmental Sustainability (ES) Board for Bristol – and we are seeking expressions of interest to join.

This strategic city board will be aligned to the ambitions set out in the One City Plan and work in collaboration with others strategic boards covering the economy, health & wellbeing, homes, transport and learning.

In total there will be six ‘One City’ boards which will drive action and deliver on the goals set out in the One City Plan.

The Environmental Sustainability Board and its members will lead, support and advise on action to deliver the environmental sustainability aspects of the One City Plan and the recently published ‘Our Future’ vision, including accelerating progress towards carbon neutrality and zero waste in Bristol.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from people with varied backgrounds, both from key organisations and/or those with expertise in relevant sectors to bring their experience, resources, knowledge and networks to help lead Bristol’s journey towards becoming a more a sustainable city with a high quality of life for all.

Expressions of interest (EOI) are being invited to the Bristol City Office from 02 May 2019 until 9am on 20 May 2019.

Please find the below key documents which include further details about how to submit an EOI.
