Bristol Ideas: How Can Communities Lead Climate Action? Panel discussion

October 20 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+1

Representatives of six Bristol communities discuss their work in developing climate action plans.

Bristol’s community organisations and artists are pioneering bold and equitable community-led climate action in Bristol. They share insights on how to engage diverse communities about the urgency of the climate emergency at a local level.

Throughout 2021, six community organisations representing Bristol’s most diverse and disadvantaged communities, have set about co-producing their own community climate action plans as part of the lottery-funded Bristol Community Climate Action project. The plans developed will identify key priorities to help deliver Bristol’s 2030 net zero ambition, whilst simultaneously improving the quality of life for local residents in the civic recovery from the Covid pandemic.

This session will include a series of short presentations from six of Bristol’s leading community organisations, followed by an audience Q&A and interspersed with invitations from community artists to sample climate craftivism and watch co-produced climate-themed memes.

Speakers include:

  • Thomas Dixon, ACH
  • Karen Edkins, Lockleaze Community Trust
  • Emily Fifield, Eastside Community Trust
  • Emma Geen, Bristol Disability Equalities Forum
  • Kirsty Hammond, Heart of BS13
  • Amy Harrison, Bristol Green Capital Partnership
  • Dee Moxon, Community Artist
  • Donna Sealey, Ambition Lawrence Weston
  • Abiir Shirdoon, Eastside Community Trust
  • Morgan Tipping, Socially Engaged Artist
