After declaring a Climate Emergency in 2018, when Councillor Carla Denyer’s Green motion was successfully passed by the Council and 74% of Councils across the country followed suit, the current administration has done little to deliver meaningful change.
Our Councillors have been putting forward ambitious proposals to reduce emissions as soon as possible, whilst holding the Mayor to account to deliver on Bristol’s pledge, including asking him to answer tough questions on why promised investment in clean energy has not yet been delivered.
Green Councillors also support Climate strikers and the Bristol Youth Strike 4 Climate, want to see a ‘Green New Deal’, oppose the expansion of Bristol Airport and are working hard to making sure the Council’s commitment to ending Council investment in fossil fuels becomes a reality. They are also working hard to support action on the Ecological Emergency.
But we need to do more. More Green Councillors and a Green Mayor are essential for meaningful action to tackle the Climate and Ecological Emergencies.
Vote Green for real action.
