Bristol intends to be the UK’s first European Green Capital City. A city at the leading edge of environmental innovations, with a vibrant economy that reduces carbon emissions and minimises the consumption of finite resources.
An ‘Ecopolis’ that takes full advantage of clean and renewable energies and energy-saving building systems, a region with resilient local food chains and integrated public transport and cycle intrastructures, fit for its citizens to enjoy at work and play.
Supported by many significant businesses and institutions within the city, this book seeks to inspire and challenge its leaders and citizens to come together and provide a high quality, equitable, low-carbon city for all.
“Bristol – Inspiring Change celebrates the green achievements of Bristol and Bristolians, those well known and those whose work has gone unsung. This is a busy, buzzy and creative city – richly peopled by those who want to help plan our future. Bristol is changing and must do so thoughtfully if it is to prosper in this complex and unpredictable century”- Alastair Sawday
