Triodos Bank takes part in events in many ways, whether sending you literature to display at your events, taking a stand at an exhibition, or giving presentations.
Word of mouth is the most powerful way for people to learn about the work and values of the Bank. With this in mind, we try to participate in as wide a range of events as possible, creating the opportunity for people to hear about our work first hand.
Film screening: The Big Short - followed by a live interview with Molly Scott CATO, MEP South West - Kit Beazley, Head of Finance at Triodos Bank - Ciaran Mundy, CEO of Bristol Pound.
Sunday 6th November 2016, 2;30pm, Cube Cinema, Stoke's Croft, Bristol
Money, chaos & corruption: how the financial system got us into this mess and what can be done about it
The Big Short’s “dramatic retelling of the 2007-8 financial crisis reveals a riveting world of chaos, corruption and misfits” says the Guardian, but the results from the actual event seems way beyond our control. Or is it? Join Bristol Pound and Triodos Bank, for an afternoon of a comical and critical insight into the flaws of the global financial system and then discuss how we can practically respond and make things better.
The event will be a chance to see the critically acclaimed film and then take part in a live interview with renowned economic expert and MEP Molly Scott Cato and Triodos Bank’s Head of Finance Kit Beazley. Moderated by Bristol Pound CEO Ciaran Mundy, the focus will be on what we can do in our everyday lives to bring about the positive change we all want and empower our communities to create sustainable, resilient, and real economies.
Tickets and £3 and £5 with all proceeds donated to a local charity.
Triodos Bank Good Mornings: Free Networking Breakfast - Sustainable Urban Growth
Wednesday 16 November 2016, 7:45am - 9:15am, Triodos Bank, Deanery Road, Bristol BS1 5AS
Bristol is a hub for businesses with ambitions beyond profit. We invite you to connect with each other at the fifth in our series of networking events.
This is your chance to learn from and find opportunities with local, like-minded organisations. An organic breakfast will be provided.
The theme of the event is Sustainable Urban Growth and will include a talk from Mike Fox, Associate Planning Director and Mel Clinton, Associate, Director of Planning and Economic Regeneration at Nash Partnership.
Lack of housing is one of the most significant challenges of our time. Successive governments and the industry have failed to deliver over the last 40 years. As a result, we are on the verge of an affordability crisis that has implications for our communities, our economy and our environment.
The Mayor of Bristol has made housing a key priority and accommodating growth is central to the forthcoming Joint Spatial Plan for the West of England.
However, it is not just about numbers. Housing is fundamental to wellbeing so the quality, type of homes and sense of place are vital too.
Mike Fox and Mel Clinton will share their views on how we can deliver more housing, while creating more environmentally-responsive, economically successful and distinctive places.
Spaces are free but limited, so register early to attend
The event is now fully booked. You can join the waiting list here - https://sustainableurbangrowth.eventbrite.co.uk

Do you need an expert to talk about ethical finance at your event?
While mainstream banking struggles to come to terms with an unprecedented financial crisis, many ethical banks have flourished. Triodos is one of them. We’re Europe’s leading sustainable bank and have several engaging speakers available to discuss this, as well as a range of issues such as sustainability and finance, solutions for a sustainable world, social investment, mission-connected investment (or how charities can use their assets more effectively), and investing equity in social businesses. They can also discuss our current activity in the UK and Ireland, our future plans and the range of ethical issues we are engaged in.
Triodos Bank is taking part in the GO GREEN initiative which is run in partnership with Bristol 2015 European Green Capital, Business West and Low Carbon South West.
The initiative aims to help businesses be better in five key areas: planning and resilience, travel and transport, energy and efficiency, sustainable sourcing and happy and healthy living.
