What can I do

There are many ways you can help support the Global Goals either as a student, teacher, business person or a concerned citizen – and this is the place to start! We have created a digital hub for you to find ways to help achieve a more sustainable planet.

We are also running our own educational campaigns and projects. Do have a look at our Bristol 17 – their ideas are relevant wherever you live!

Our Bristol 17 heroes

Looking at 17 Goals – all so wide-reaching – can be a bit overwhelming. So we’ve asked 17 networks and organisations across the city who are doing great work towards reaching one or more Goals to help. The organisations represent a wide range of Bristol people so that we can highlight some of the best local projects and give voice to some of our marginalised communities and amplify their calls to action.  

We’ve also asked them to nominate a hero for the Goal and we’re making a series of short films about these heroes, and releasing them one a week leading up to COP26 in November. Watch the films, and we hope you’ll be inspired to take some action yourself. You’ll see that these are everyday people, and they all share our desire for a greener, fairer future for all.
