    Event description

    Join us at Sparks to celebrate the development of five new Community Climate Action plans for the city.

    Climate action requires collective action. By working together we can take powerful Community Climate Action which reduces carbon and improves lives.

    The Community Climate Action Project is an ambitious, citywide programme funded by the National Lottery’s Climate Action Fund. It demonstrates the important role communities can play in achieving the city’s climate and nature ambitions, whilst also improving people’s quality of life.

    The climate action we take as individuals and households is critically important. And the actions of businesses and organisations too. But we can’t solve the climate crisis without community. In Bristol, community has been key to so much the city has achieved. It’s people working together that makes real change happen. With community we can achieve great things.

    The Community Climate Action Project's learning and mentoring programme was launched in 2023, with the aim of supporting more, and more diverse, community organisations in Bristol with their climate action journeys. In April 2023, Southmead Development Trust, Knowle West Media Centre, Windmill Hill City Farm, Hillfields Community Garden, and BRICKS joined the programme and have been working with their local communities to co-produce climate action plans.  

    On the 25 April 2024, we will be launching three of these community climate action plans, for Southmead, Bedminster and Brislington. We will also be hearing about emerging priorities in Hillfields and Knowle West, with their plans both due to launch in June this year.

    We invite you to join us in celebrating and sharing the work done by these communities to identify  climate and nature priorities for their local area in collaboration with residents and city partners, and to think about what comes next.

    We will also be announcing the next round of communities taking part in the 2024/25 cohort of the learning and mentoring programme, which starts on the 1st May this year.
