In 2015 Bristol was the European Green Capital. The title was awarded in recognition of the city’s strong environmental performance and its plans for the future. Since then the city has made excellent progress across a wide range of environmental targets.

This event will be an opportunity to reflect upon and celebrate that progress and to share further plans with key partners in the city, helping to build momentum and speed up delivery.

Speakers include Ann Cousins, co-chair of the Environmental Sustainability Board; Jim Longhurst, Assistant Vice-Chancellor : Environment & Sustainability at UWE; Cllr Shah, Cabinet Member for Climate, Ecology and Sustainable Growth and Lizzi Testani, COO at Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC.

This is part of #BristolResilience week. From 8 to 16 October the city will host a series of events on the theme of resilience and recovery from COVID-19. Topics to be covered include: the role of property and construction in recovery; how businesses can prepare for winter and Brexit; the role for communities; and resilience to climate change in the next five years. It will culminate in the launch of the first version of the economic recovery plan for the city. Events will be brought together in partnership with Festival of Ideas, Bristol Housing Festival, Bristol One City and Business West.
