‘Future Bristol: Low Carbon 2050’

By Bridget Elliott on 25th June 2013

The City of Bristol has developed an online, interactive vision of what the city could look like in 2050. The website ‘Future Bristol: Low Carbon 2050’ presents two hypothetical scenarios, each featuring a different mix of low carbon measures, technology and infrastructure. The aim of the website is to prompt public discussion about how Bristol can become a low carbon city, and in particular, discover how the Bristol community feels about the two different scenarios (and the various low carbon features which make up each scenario). Ultimately, it is hoped that this website will provide a tool to help shape the future that the Bristol community would like by providing valuable evidence to inform local policy.
