We’re very excited to say that in a little over a month, we’re hitting the road to come to a town near you (hopefully!).
Sam, our Community Connector, will be travelling in UK, France, Austria, New York and hopefully Toronto, making time to stop in on local food distributors, entrepreneurs and hotspots of interesting local food systems. Sam will be available to meet one-on-one, groups of local food distributors, speak at conferences, and run workshops on local food enterprise.
He’ll be in UK & Europe in August & September, then on into North America in September & October.
If you’d be keen to catch up with Sam, or put on an event, please drop us an email at sam [at] buckybox [dot] com or join one of our Google+ Events and tell us what you’re thinking!
We don’t get up every morning wanting or expecting adulation. That said, it’s always nice to be acknowledged for the work you’re doing and sometimes it makes you feel like other people believe in your idea too.
This week we were delighted to hear from the Sustainable Entrepreneurship Award organisers that we have made it into the Top 5 for this global award which is in its second year :
The sea honours people and companies who are already shaping the world of tomorrow today. They work together with others towards a sustainable future and develop intelligent solutions for the environment and society through their regular business activities or through innovative processes and projects. They focus their resources and ideas on social and ecological innovations and, in doing so, take the idea of corporate social responsibility one step further.
We feel somewhat humbled to have made it to the top 5 from the 260 entrants. Sadly we couldn’t jump on a plane to be at the swanky awards ceremony in Austria to meet some of the people behind the remarkable ideas and organisations which are forging a better future.
We were nominated in the Development & Services category of the ‘Best Project’ award – we were certainly impressed by some of the other projects and enterprises merging from this space as well.
Here’s to raising a glass of something bubbly to all the awesome people around the world working on projects, businesses, and badly needed services to make the world a little (or a lot) better!
Here’s a short video to give you a little pep talk to make the world awesome:
