The climate crisis means that big changes are coming. This is important to Disabled people as we are one of the groups who will be most at risk. The good new is that this time of change can also be an amazing chance to create a better society for all. Let’s create change together!
Bristol is going to go carbon net-zero by 2030. This means that the city will be making big changes to our use of resources, transport, and energy, and our relationship to food and nature. These changes will stop Bristol creating gases that add to the climate crisis. The changes will also help Bristol cope with the effects of the climate crisis.
The changes to our city could make life more difficult for Disabled people. Or they could make life much better and more just for us! This will be decided by what plans are made and how they are carried out! So the Bristol Disability Equality Forum is very excited to input on the plans through the Community Climate Action project.
The Community Climate Action project is run by the Bristol Green Capital Partnership and helped by Bristol City Council. The Forum will bring Disabled people in Bristol together to:
- Feed into the 2030 councils plans so that they are good for Disabled people
- Create a Climate Action Plan for Disabled people in Bristol
The plans will focus on making quality life better at the same time as lowering our carbon emissions.
The role of the Forum is to guide the project. We need you to bring it to life!
Check in on this page and our social media regularly to find out how you can help!
Steering group members: To help guide this work we are forming a steering group of Disabled people in Bristol.
This group will meet once a month for at least a year to guide the project. We will chose members so that the group is as diverse as possible.
