West of England Sustainable Technologies Scale-Up Programme – Outdoor Networking Event
About this event
Join SETsquared and the University of Bath and West England’s Sustainable Technologies Scale-up Programme for their September outdoor networking event – a great way to connect with like-minded people whilst doing good for the community around you.
Working with Your Park Bristol and Bath – a local charity, the Sustainable Technologies Programme team are inviting their business cohort and local organisations to their team networking event on Friday 23rd September at the beautiful Blaise Estate in Bristol from 12 noon.
The Blaise Estate is a 650-acre parkland, which includes a museum, castle, and children’s play area. The park can be accessed from Kings Weston Road, BS10 7QS, and is about 30 minutes by bus or car from Bristol city centre. There is also a car park on site (charges apply). During the afternoon, teams will work together to remove rhododendron (invasive species) that outcompetes many native species that are better for nature.
