ClairCity research, in partnership with BCC, shows Bristolians are more ambitious when tackling Climate Change

ClairCity, an EU-funded research project working with UWE and BCC, published a report this week that suggests that net-zero targets could be achieved more quickly if the public is involved in designing environmental policy.

A copy of the summary of their report can be found below. It includes details of a climate policy programme, designed by Bristolians, that tackles air pollution, calls for public transport investment, and more green housing initiatives.

Welcoming the report, Darren said:

This Action Plan shows the public want to tackle our Climate Emergency and they want our governments to be more ambitious when facing this challenge head-on. It also indicates that the contributions of the public are a valuable and underutilised resource when creating environmental policy, a view that I’ve held for some time. With Bristol piloting a climate focussed Citizen’s Assembly this year, I’m sure we will see even more evidence of this soon
