Upcoming Events in our City of Sanctuary
The Climate & Our Community
When: 10th December 2019, 9am -1pm
Where: City Hall, Bristol
What: We invite Bristol’s communities to help shape the conversation on climate change and climate change and migration.
Climate change is happening at a faster rate than we thought. And it seems, much faster than we are acting on it. There is a real risk to our food systems, to our economy and of increasing extreme weather and the poorest communities will be hit first. As temperatures rise and places become more difficult to live in, we will see more people being forced to move, with effects all around the world, in Europe and here in the UK.
This is our Bristol. Let’s come together to imagine how we can shape these defining issues of our time to create a safer and more welcoming city for all.
