Bristol’s Citizen’s Assembly

Closes 31 Dec 2021

Opened 24 Nov 2020


Bristol’s first citizens’ assembly will be held in early 2021 and will discuss and answer the important question: “How do we recover from COVID-19 and create a better future for all in Bristol?”      


The Bristol Citizens’ Assembly will bring together a randomly selected group of people who broadly reflect the diverse communities of Bristol. They will hear about and discuss how COVID-19 has affected Bristol, and then make recommendations on what should happen and how things should change.

One City Economy Board and adapted into the city’s recovery strategy; and

• Bristol City Council’s Cabinet as a key input in shaping our future strategy and actions.


  • All Areas
