Candidates for Bristol’s top job will be answering questions from city residents at a sustainability-themed debate tomorrow (Wednesday) at the Arnolfini gallery.
Over 200 people have got a ticket for the *sold out* event but you can listen to the whole thing live on Ujima radio from 7pm.
You can also join the debate on Twitter using the hashtag #BrisFuturesMayor. Questions from twitter will be taken on the night, so you can grill the candidates from wherever you are.
The ‘hustings’ event has been organised by Bristol Pound, Bristol Green Capital Partnership CIC, Bristol Cycling Campaign, Friends of the Earth and Sustrans.
Ciaran Mundy, CEO of Bristol Pound, said
“It’s important the Mayor of Bristol takes the city’s environment and local economy seriously. This event is the perfect opportunity for the candidates to tell us their ideas for how Bristol will become a sustainable city for the future.”
The event will give the people of Bristol a chance to hear the candidates’ plans for creating a low carbon and sustainable future for the city. Questions will be taken from the audience, in advance and on the night, on the four key themes of sustainable transport & active travel, energy & climate change, local economy and the Bristol Green Capital Partnership vision of a low carbon city with a high quality of life for all.
BBC Radio Bristol presenter Laura Rawlings will chair the debate with candidates George Ferguson (Bristol 1st), Kay Barnard (Liberal Democrat), Tony Dyer (Green) and Marvin Rees (Labour).
