Many Bristol citizens are taking action to tackle climate change and a new website to help them do so has been unveiled today.
The Bristol Climate Hub focuses on the top actions that individuals and organisations can take to help shrink their carbon footprint, while sharing inspiring stories of those who have already made a difference.
Brought forward in response to requests from citizens who say they want to help combat climate change, but need clear advice on which actions are most effective for them, an important feature of the Hub is a simple quiz, enabling it to give people tailored advice suited to their lives.
A series of action cards offering individuals and businesses ideas on how they can contribute and make the biggest impact are also a feature of the new site, which will be updated with examples of the action being taken to support and complement action by individuals and families
The website marks the second anniversary of the city becoming the first in the UK to declare a Climate Emergency and its launch follows last week’s Bristol City Council Cabinet approval of a multi-million pound programme to reduce the carbon and ecological footprint in Bristol.
The Climate and Ecological Emergency Programme will enable the council to hit its climate targets, secure investment in climate projects and support citizens and businesses and organisations to join in the city-wide effort to become a carbon neutral and resilient city by 2030.
