Description

A Sustainable West of England? Metro Mayor Hustings

25th April, 6.30pm – 8.30pm (Arrival and registration from 6pm)

Priory Road Lecture Theatre*, University of Bristol

Protecting and enhancing our region's environment and its sustainability is one of the greatest challenges we face, and potentially one of our greatest opportunities. In the future, regions that thrive are likely to be those that adapt to a low carbon, more efficient world.

To ensure environmental sustainability is high on the agenda of the new West of England metro mayor, Bristol Green Capital Partnership is working with partners to host a 'metro mayor' hustings in the run-up to the election on 4 May: see our blog for more information.

This event will offer an opportunity to hear from the candidates on their environmental sustainability policies. All six confirmed candidates will be taking part:

  • Aaron Foot, UK Independence Party
  • Darren Hall, Green Party
  • John Savage, Independent
  • Lesley Mansell, Labour Party
  • Stephen Williams, Liberal Democrat Party
  • Tim Bowles, Conservative Party

This event will be audio recorded and made available on our website.

The hustings will address four key theme areas: air quality, housing and the green belt, transport and future powers for the West of England. You can submit your questions related to these themes using our online form and we will draw on your suggestions on the night.

This event is organised by Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas, University of Bristol, Friends of the Earth, Avon Wildlife Trust, Sustrans and in association with Ujima Radio.
