The ‘Bristol Method’ was the learning sharing element of European Green Capital 2015. It was a way of sharing learnings from Bristol’s journey in becoming a more sustainable city, not just in 2015 but over the last decade, the Method offers case studies to help those in other cities across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
These reports featured many Bristol Green Capital Partnership member organisations and projects, and we have offered to host the 2015 Method reports and committed to publish new ‘Bristol Method+’ reports to share new learnings since then.
This new Bristol method+ report was published in July 2018, produced by the University of Bristol Cabot Institute with Bristol Green Capital Partnership drawing on inputs from members of the Bristol SDG Alliance . This looks at the SDGs’ relevance to Bristol, the origins of action in the city, how different actors have engaged and how Bristol is driving the SDG agenda, including the Bristol SDG Alliance and its successes to date. It also offers key learnings for others, and finally considers some possible futures of the SDGs in the city, drawing on Alliance members’ views.
