Projects

Community climate action plans

The Bristol Community Climate Action Project is taking action on both climate ​and inequality ​through the cocreation of community-led climate action plans whilst promoting community leadership​ on climate.

During 2021 ACH, Ambition Lawrence Weston, Bristol Disability Equality Forum, Eastside Community Trust, Heart of BS13 and Lockleaze Neighbourhood Trust led an in-depth community engagement process to coproduce their community climate action plans. Supported by Bristol Green Capital Partnership, Bristol City Council and CSE, the community organisations hosted accessible climate conversations with their communities exploring the themes of transport, energy, food, waste, nature, buildings, jobs/economy and inequality. These conversations enabled each community to create a unique set of climate priorities as part of a comprehensive community climate action plan.

Bristol communities leading the way on climate change

CCA community partnersEmpowered community leadership on climate is an essential ingredient to how a city responds to the climate emergency. Community organisations showed real leadership during the pandemic. They proved how essential they are when a city needs to respond to a crisis, demonstrating why they should be a critical part of a city or region’s strategic response to the climate and ecological crises.

The creation of community-led plans gives communities genuine agency around climate action and can form part of a city’s climate strategy ensuring it is informed by, and inclusive of the diverse community insights.
