How to make your city greener
As European Green Capital in 2015, we have an opportunity to share what we know with people all over the country, across Europe and around the world.
To do this as effectively as we can, we have created the ‘Bristol Method’: a knowledge-transfer programme aimed at helping people in other cities understand and apply the lessons that Bristol has learned in becoming a more sustainable city, not just in 2015 but over the last decade.
The Bristol Method is made up of a series of modules, or chapters. Each one is presented as an easy-to-digest ‘how to’ guide on a particular topic, which use Bristol’s experiences as a case study. The modules contain generic advice and recommendations that each reader can tailor to their own circumstances. 

Transforming the city

These modules will help you think about how to set a vision for the future of your city, unlock funding to achieve it, and then measure success.
