RISE is one of the largest student-run social enterprise conferences in the UK. This year, the conference is taking place on Saturday 15th November, focusing on the theme ‘Business Conscience: Innovating for the Future’.
Climate change and sustainability are hot topics around the globe and Bristol, as European Green Capital, has a unique opportunity in 2015 to position itself as the ‘sustainable event destination’ in the UK.
To assist the Bristol Event Industry to develop its sustainable event credentials, Positive Impact Events will be hosting sustainable event workshops throughout 2015. In advance of these I would like to invite you to an introductory workshop.

As a social enterprise, Square Food Foundation aims to provide affordable and accessible quality cookery classes and courses to community groups and individuals at risk of social exclusion – we believe that cooking can change lives. Our Masterclasses and team building programme support our community based work – so that everyone has a place at the table.
This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated individual to join our small but ambitious team and work in a diverse community setting – helping to support the organisation as it grows and develops.
Growing Support is an innovative and fast growing social enterprise working to tackle the issues of loneliness, isolation and lack of meaningful activity for people in care. We are looking for a talented social and therapeutic horticulture facilitator to work in care homes and community gardens across Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
Resource Futures’ mission is to help others to use resources efficiently and effectively; minimising the impact of consumption on the environment now and for the future. Our work involves delivering consultancy support to a broad range of public and private sector clients including local authorities, government bodies, and waste management companies. Work often involves primary research such as desk based studies, field work (including waste composition analysis and surveys), analysing waste data as well as promoting the roll out of new collection systems to householders.
We are looking to appoint an excellent candidate to develop, manage and implement a range of sustainability projects involving students.
