Community-led Climate ActionBack to Projects
Community Climate Action Project
In October 2020 the collaborative Community Climate Action project launched with support from the National Lottery’s Climate Action Fund. The project enables six Bristol community organisations – Ambition Lawrence Weston, ACH, Bristol Disability Equality Forum, Heart of BS13, Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust, and Eastside Community Trust to play a leading role in shaping Bristol’s transition to a low carbon and climate resilient city.
During 2021 the six community partners will work with their communities, and in collaboration with Bristol Green Capital Partnership, Bristol City Council and the Centre for Sustainable Energy, to coproduce community climate action plans, supporting Bristol’s efforts to become carbon neutral by 2030.
The project will use coproduction principles to collaboratively develop the community climate action plans, which aim to identify social cobenefits for citizens in addition to key priorities for positively impacting climate change locally. The ambition of the community partners is for the plans to improve quality life for local people whilst reducing carbon emissions.
