Community Climate Action

Big changes are coming to Bristol to stop climate change.  These changes could make life better or worse for Disabled people.  So Disabled people in Bristol have made a plan to make sure that the changes make our city better for everyone and the planet.

Climate change means how our planet’s weather and temperature is changing because people use dirty fuels like oil and gas. This is causing lots of problems in Bristol and around the world. But there are ways of fixing the problem. We can have clean energy, clean air, and a clean city.

By 2030 Bristol wants to use more clean fuels, like solar panels, and to lower waste, like food that isn’t eaten and plastic packaging.  This means changes to things that are important to us like buses, food, and heating our homes.

If the changes are done well this could mean good things for Disabled people, like more accessible buses, better pavements and homes that are cheaper to heat.  Our plan shows how these changes can be made well and stop new barriers being made for Disabled people.  

Picture of person talking

We found that 89% of Disabled people care a lot about climate change and 93% are already taking some kind of action. But we have been ignored for too long in the conversation about climate change. It’s time to raise our voices for the changes we want to see.

The Centre for Sustainable Energy found that we already use less dirty energy than most groups in Bristol. So our role in the conversation should be as climate leaders. Let’s make Bristol better for Disabled people now and for the future of the young people we love.

People with power in Bristol and the UK need to come to us and do the work of making action on climate change accessible. But everyone has a part to play. We need your voice.

The plan is already being listened to.  The week after it was launched we met the people from the UK Government who work on climate change to tell them how to make their work accessible. 

They said that Bristol has the best community climate change work in the country.
