A bold aspiration to shape how Bristol could look 50 years from now has been launched.

The council shared the ‘Bristol Resilience Strategy’ - a framework to protect Bristol against potential shocks and pressures it may encounter in the future.

Many of the ideas included in the strategy will benefit the next generation, including votes for 16 year olds, free bus travel for U16s and a vision for a child-friendly city.

Youth Mayor and North Bristol Post 16 Centre student, Theo Davis, said: “The Youth Mayors and Youth Council are pleased to see a City Resilience Strategy that looks fifty years ahead to a time when our own children will be adults. It is great to see that the strategy include actions that will directly benefit young people.
