Cheltenham – People, Planet, Pint: Sustainability Meetup
May 25 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Whether you’re a sustainability professional, small business owner, local council/government worker, student, consultant, looking to switch careers, or anything else besides, come down and meet others interested in sustainability.
No agenda, workshops or webinars. Just chat over a drink.
This relaxed event brings together those with a shared passion for sustainability in all its forms.
We meet monthly to chat about what’s going on in the Net Zero / Sustainability space, “network” and meet others who are interested in the industry.
Let’s see where the conversation, and night, takes us!
Chat with other industry experts and talk directly to business owners facing the challenges you’re trying to solve. Find others who can collaborate and help you on your journey and have fun doing so!
We’re in a slightly different bit of Deya this month, in the Mixed Ferm Tap Room which is on the same Industrial Estate but Unit 33/34 instead of the Main Tap Room. Any issues finding us, just head into the main site and they will direct you.
Raechel Kelly worked in sustainable finance for 12 years, on ESG analysis and fossil fuel divestment. In 2020 she set up The Liminality, her small solo project working on climate communications and facilitation. In the same year she approached local charity Vision 21 to set up Planet Cheltenham, the town’s first community climate solutions hub with the aim of empowering residents around joyful climate action. She now runs several projects including a Youth Climate Group, Little Planet Cheltenham baby group, and took part in the pilot Doughnut Economics Learning Journey as a host to some amazing local renegade economists. She is a NED at Good With Money, an RSA fellow, and you will always find her in the kitchen at parties (asking where the recycling bin is).
Becki Sillence works for local climate charity Vision 21 as the communications manager for the CheltenhamZero project, a joint initiative between Vision21 and Cheltenham Borough Council supporting local organisations to move towards a Net Zero position. She has worked with a wide range of people and organisations in Cheltenham and has experience in the community, engagement and flood resilience sectors.
Andrew Lansley is the Innovation Manager for Cheltenham Festivals, Senior Academic at the University of Gloucestershire and facilitator for the Cheltenham Culture Board.
