Going over the handlebars on my tiny yellow bike with stabilisers. I bawled my eyes out.

Measuring our Impact

Gathering data can be time consuming and boring, so often staff don’t set about the task of monitoring progress with much relish.  However, in our increasingly evidenced-based world, each year Life Cycle goes to great efforts to prove that we are having a positive impact on the community.  

A good transport plan for Bristol

Over the last 18 months I have been attending the Green Capital Partnership Sustainable Transport Action Group or STAG for short. One of the key focusses of STAG over the period has been the development of the Good Transport Plan. The idea originally came from the Bristol Food Network who pioneered the good food plan, to bring together disparate voices in the City to agree a shared vision on food issues.
