Leeds – People, Planet, Pastry
February 28 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
People, Planet, Pastry
If you’re interested or curious about sustainability, come along to the People, Planet, Pastry event to meet like-minded business owners who are taking action on sustainability. Learn about what is going on locally, share insights on how to overcome barriers and make new friends!
This relaxed and informal event brings people together to learn more about sustainability and take action.
The sister event, People, Planet, Pint, brings people together to learn more and chat about climate, while our “Pastry” series is focused on empowering small businesses with the action they can take and where to start with sustainability.
While we will mostly be discussing businesses, this is an open event where anyone is welcome, so if you’re curious about what’s going on, come on down!
Your Volunteer Host
Nadine Smith is a founder and Creative Director of TSD (The Sustainable Designer), an experiential design agency with sustainability at its core. Experiential design (e.g. wayfinding, exhibitions and brand activation) sees physical projects realised in the built environment, and making sure these projects remain environmentally sustainable is the challenge that TSD strives to design for. A sustainable focus forms the beginning, middle and end of every project TSD takes on, from developing user strategies that reduce energy use through wayfinding projects to ensuring printed collateral is produced in a way that allows for best recovery of materials at the end of life.
TSD have recently expanded their offices outside of London to the North of England (Leeds) and are looking forward to meeting local sustainably-minded folk for a coffee and a chat.
Small99 is a platform that guides small business owners to Net Zero and avoids the overwhelm. Small99 organises the PPP events, with the belief that bringing people together will spark unexpected solutions to collaboration in tackling climate change.
Small99 is delighted to partner with Sage who will become our key People Planet Pastry sponsor.
The support of Sage will allow us to cover our event cost (including pastries), but also to expand to more cities and keep the conversations and decarbonisation actions growing.
Sage is helping SMBs decarbonise through tech solutions and education.
Conrad Langridge, Sage Earth:
“We have seen the success of the People Planet Pint series run by Adam and the team, and having attended a number of sessions we know the value this is bringing the small business community, we wanted to support People Planet Pastry series to build on that success but in a way that focuses on SMB decarbonisation as a direct action.”
