Bristol’s Green Roots has drawn on the thoughts and memories of more than a hundred people who have worked in Bristol’s environmental movement over the last 40 years to make our city, and the world, more sustainable, people-friendly and equal.


Tracing the beginnings of organisations like Sustrans, Centre for Sustainable Energy and Bristol Friends of the Earth as well as the work of some of the extraordinarily dedicated sustainable businesses, community groups, initiatives and individuals, this publication celebrates the achievements of those who strive to make Bristol a better place to live.


Bristol’s Green Roots is a Schumacher Institute project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. It documents the history of Bristol’s modern environmental movement to ensure that the achievements, successes and lessons learned over the past four decades are recorded for future generations.
