After fifteen successful years promoting sustainability across the Swansea region, funding for the Sustainable Swansea initiative has come to an end. This website provides an overview of what has been achieved through the initiative and remains a useful source of information and ideas. However, some resources and information on this site will inevitably become out-of-date.
The partnership project, managed by Swansea Environmental Forum, has achieved many things over the years including: working with communities to create over a dozen Green Maps; organising major public exhibitions and events such as Earth from the Air and Hard Rain; coordinating the prestigious Sustainable Swansea Awards that brought well-earned recognition to many local organisations, projects and individuals; organising four Digital Streams projects to engage people with their water environment and exhibiting the participant's photographs at notable public venues; establishing the Swansea Sustainability Trail and running the Trailblazers children's holiday activities.
The Sustainable Swansea project staff have now moved to pastures new and Swansea Environmental Forum will be focusing on other projects over the coming years. We would like to thank all the staff, volunteers, funders and participants for their support and contributions.
We found plenty to like about the rivers and lakes we visited, and with the help of the Natural Resources Wales officer who accompanied us, were able to understand a bit more about the issues of pollution and flooding that can affect them so much, as well as finding out about the life to be found in, on and around the water.
