Bristol City Council
Insights of the ReportIssued: 2022
Bristol is a diverse, creative and internationally integrated city in the South West of England. It was from Bristol that some of the first European ships sailed west to explore uncharted waters, and Bristol played a key role in Atlantic commerce, profiting from the tobacco and slave trades in particular. While the city grew rich from this commerce, it still grapples with the legacy of its role in the slave trade. Bristol’s international history is reflected in its contemporary diversity. The population comes from 187 countries, speaking 91 different languages.
The adoption of the SDGs developed through partnership. In 2017, members of Bristol's SDG Alliance received funding from the University of Bristol to support efforts to ‘localise’ the SDGs and integrate them into the One City Plan.
