Bristol Council Case Study

BRISTOL 2015 was set up to facilitate Bristol’s year as the European Green Capital. As part of their year celebration, BRISTOL 2015 ran a range of school programmes to engage the next generation in sustainability. With 116 schools in Bristol able to take part in five workshops, there was a challenge of sharing availability with schools as well as minimising the administration work that comes with each booking.
