The Big People, Planet, Pint – Stroud & South West: Sustainability Meetup
July 6 @ 2:00 pm - 11:00 pm
An informal day of networking and recharging, connecting to others working in the South West and being inspired by local projects. Leave with a sense of shared purpose and renewed appetite for action.
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.
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!
Your Volunteer Hosts
Danny Matthews (Cirencester host) is an award-winning brand designer who over the last year has taken small steps for big change in his life and business and would now like to surround himself with likeminded people to learn more about building a sustainable future.
Raechel Kelly (Cheltenham host) 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).
We’ll also be hearing from small businesses about what they’re up to with their sustainability efforts.
Special Guest Speaker: Mark Stevenson on ‘The Future and What to Do About It’
