3. The Big Green Chair by Seed is being launched at Big Green Week and will be located all week at BGW HQ at the Colston Hall. The idea of the chair is that it roams the country, being the backdrop for intimate, almost fireside evenings with some of the UK’s leading Eco speakers. The speaker is often preceded with a local singer songwriter or poet; and after the speaker finishes, they are invited to sign the chair and over time making it an iconic symbol of hope and progress. At the BGW we hope to have many of the speakers have interviewed in the Big Green Chair and signing it – giving the chair a great launch on it’s national tour.
