In 2015, Bristol became the UK’s first ever European Green Capital in recognition of what its citizens have already achieved in making our city a healthier, happier place to live. But with climate change an integral part of our lives, it is essential Bristol leads the way in climate action. Sustainability must be at the heart of city policies & planning for Bristol to be in with the chance of reaching net zero by 2030.

The Future Economy Network is happy to host Bristol's Sustainability Hustings for the Mayoral Elections of 2020 to talk about their sustainability plans for the city.

We have invited all the candidates to the stage but we need YOU to decide the questions that matter.

Please tweet your questions at @FutureEconomyN #FENlive or send your questions for the candidates to, and let us know whether you are happy to ask the question yourself on the night. We can’t guarantee to ask every single question sent in, but we aim represent as wide a range of views as possible within the time available.

This event is free but please book in advance for entry.
