Community Climate Action Project

In October 2020 the innovative Community Climate Action project launched with support from the National Lottery’s Climate Action Fund. The project sees six Bristol community organisations – Ambition Lawrence Weston, ACH, Bristol Disability Equality Forum, Heart of BS13Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust, and Eastside Community Trust play a leading role in shaping Bristol’s transition to a low carbon and climate resilient city.  

Collectively these community organisations represent the diverse demographic of Bristol whilst also including some of the less heard community voices in the climate change debate.

During 2021, the six community partners are actively engaging with their communities and collaborating with Bristol Green Capital Partnership, Bristol City Council and the Centre for Sustainable Energy to identify community priorities and coproduce community climate action plans, supporting Bristol’s efforts to become carbon neutral by 2030 at a community-level.

The action plans will focus on improving the quality life for local people whilst simultaneously reducing carbon emissions and the project is underpinned by the principle of coproduction. Each community partner has developed a unique approach to engage and inspire their communities with conversations around climate action, within the challenging context of the recovery from covid.

Once the community climate action plans are developed (late 2021), the community partners and BGCP aim to collaborate with strategic partners in the city and beyond to implement the priorities identified and catalyse tangible community-led action climate action.
