Cheltenham Science Festival- People, Planet, Pint: Sustainability Meetup

June 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Pop down to your local People Planet Pint meetup to find more about what’s going on locally with sustainability and how you can get involved

Pop down to your local People Planet Pint meetup to find more about what’s going on locally with sustainability and how you can get involved.

No pitches, powerpoints or panels. Just People, Planet, Pint/s.

Your local meetup is a great place to start your journey or continue learning, and meet diverse people to chat about life and how we can sustain it. Every job is a climate job, so come along and learn about how you can take action, as well as what is going on locally.

We welcome everyone, regardless of their experience or background. People Planet Pint is a space where everyone can feel comfortable learning about sustainability and sharing their ideas.

Afterall, creating a sustainable future requires connected communities. And what better way to bring everyone together than over a drink?

Prefer a Pastry to a Pint? Head along to ‘People Planet Pastry’! Equally relaxed and welcoming, they run during the day and offer an informal way to learn about what is going on locally in sustainability.

Your Volunteer Hosts

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. He works cross-sector with regional and national stakeholders to help progress the town’s relationship with culture, technology, sustainability and accessibility. Andrew believes culture can play a key role in promoting sustainable economics around Cheltenham, Gloucestershire and the UK, and is involved in numerous related projects across the live events and cultural sectors.
