North Somerset Launch co-hosted by The Future Economy Network, Weston College and Bristol Airport.


Friday 28th June 2019 saw the launch of The Future Economy Network into  North Somerset; an exciting day for the team! The launch was sponsored by Bristol Airport and took place in Weston College’s magnificent Winter Gardens Pavilion in Weston-super-Mare. It was attended by over forty public, private and third sector representatives and came about as a response to a significant number of our Network being located in North Somerset and a recognition of the need for such a sustainability hub in the region.



Attendees were digitally welcomed by Dr Paul Phillips, CEO of Weston College. Bridget Petty, Green Party Councillor and Mark Canniford, Liberal Democrat representative for Business, Economy and Employment also welcomed attendees, and spoke about the importance of embracing sustainability within the region.


This was followed by Director of The Future Economy Network, Katherine Piper and Director of The Future Economy Group, Alan Bailey. They showed a short film highlighting the benefits of subscribing to the Network and also shared exciting news about The Future Economy Group’s move to their new carbon neutral sustainability hub and advised of their upcoming Festival of Sustainable Business.


 Short presentations were then delivered by representatives from Bristol Airport, Prolectric, ETS and Solarsense.

The North Somerset launch was concluded with some very lively networking over breakfast. The Future Economy Network would like to offer sincere thanks to all of our speakers and to Bristol Airport and Weston College for their support. Also, a huge thank you to all attendees – we hope you found it an interesting and exciting event and you will support The Future Economy Network in their expansion into the region!
