We are running workshops for communities and stakeholder organisations across Bristol as part of the ClairCity project.
What should Bristol’s future look like? What should we do about traffic and air pollution? What do we need from our future houses, communities and neighbourhoods? Are electric cars the answer? Do we need to dig up all the roads? How might walking alternatives work? What about better trains or even trams, electric bikes…..?
In summer 2017 we ran workshops and events for local people in a range of neighbourhoods across the city – Knowle, Barton Hill, Bradley Stoke and Bishopston. These events helped us to collect information about the views of citizens, which informs our modelling and proposals for the city authorities.
During the events we shared information about the links between air pollution, climate change and our health, and listened to residents’ views on the long-term vision for their area and the whole of Bristol.
To find out where we will be in the future, please see our Events page.
Mutual Learning Workshop
The ClairCity “mutual learning workshop” for Bristol was designed for different stakeholders who are engaged in environment, health issues and policies in the city. It took place in July 2017, and was aimed at developing routes to a “clean air”, healthy, zero-carbon Bristol by 2050 by understanding specific challenges and opportunities for organisations, and engaging them to identify actions, milestones and priorities.
Attendees included a range of organisations, from First Bus, community groups such as Ambition Lawrence Weston and Easton Energy Group, local councillors in South Gloucestershire and Bristol, Bristol Walking Alliance, Residents Against Dirty Energy (RADE), At-Bristol, local employers, academics from UWE and the University of Bristol and Bristol Health Partnership.
You can see the introductory talks from the event on our Youtube channel.
