With its high concentration of independent shops, local currency, city farms and extensive parkland and waterways, Bristol has long been a pioneer in sustainable city living. Over 9,000 people are employed in Bristol’s low carbon economy, which has the lowest carbon emissions of major UK cities, and around 50,000 residents already involved in green activities.
The original LE:NOTRE Projects were co-funded by the European Union's Socrates and Lifelong Learning Programmes.
The LE:NOTRE Institute has been established by ECLAS as foundation under Netherlands Law.
