Recycling rates in Swansea and across Wales have increased rapidly over the past decade and the waste sent to landfill has dropped, but how will the momentum be kept up?...
The latest edition of the popular Environmental Events Swansea booklet has been published with over 200 events taking place in and around Swansea between April and December 2017. These include guided walks and cycle rides, a wide range of talks, workshops and training courses about wildlife and environmental issues, and lots of children’s activities in amazing natural settings. Most of the events are FREE or at low cost so everyone can get involved.
There are also details of several special festivals and major events, such as the Wales Nature Week and Bike Week in June, the Sculpture by the Sea Festival in July, the Gower Show and Gower Cycling Festival in August and the annual Green Fayre in November.
The booklet is produced each year by the City and County of Swansea’s Nature Conservation Team and, on this occasion, with funding from the Welsh Government Single Revenue Grant.
The booklet is available from libraries and public venues across the area and can also be downloaded from the Council’s website at www.swansea.gov.uk/environmentalevents.
