Climate change and cities

Commentary: Cities lead on climate change, says Cabot Director, Rich Pancost

What a year!

From setting up a bike-loan scheme to running a big knitathon, read about eight great student-led initiatives that marked Bristol's year as European Green Capital 2015. 

In it for good, in it for all our futures

2015 was Bristol's year as the first European Green Capital in the UK. During this time, we worked with private company Bristol2015 to deliver the city's Green Capital commitments. We ran events and shared stories about research, education for sustainable development and how we manage our estate sustainably. Students from both the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England joined forces to contribute over 100,000 hours of volunteering across the city and the year culminated in staff attending the UN Conference on Climate Change (COP21) in Paris. 2015 is over, but the story doesn't end. As a University, we will continue to share our research, support our students and manage our spaces. Together we can build a greener, more sustainable future.
