About Bristol

How do you want to live, work and travel in Bristol’s future?

That’s the question we are asking citizens across the city.

ClairCity is a project to raise awareness about air pollution and carbon emissions in our cities, looking at how we all contribute to the problem and how it affects our health and our lives.

Uniquely, the project puts the power in the hands of residents to determine the best local solutions. Bristol is one of our six pilot cities. Check out the ‘Get Involved’ tab to find out more about what’s happening, and see our ‘City Shockers’ to see why air pollution is an issue for Bristol.

The project

ClairCity is a four year EU Horizon 2020 project working directly with citizens and local authorities in six countries around Europe. We are using a game, smartphone app, competitions, workshops and events to find out about residents’ hopes and expectations for their cities in the future. Our work will help city authorities plan how to meet the needs of their residents, and do so in a way that keeps our air clean for everyone to breathe and reduces each city’s contribution to global climate change.

Bristol is a key partner in our project, working through Bristol City Council and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol). Five other cities across Europe are also partners in ClairCity: Amsterdam in the Netherlands; Sosnowiec in Poland; Ljubljana in Slovenia; Liguria region in Italy; and the Aveiro region in Portugal.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement 689289.
