Water. Food. Air. Land. Energy. Climate. Flooding. Countryside.

No, the environment isn’t significant at all. Don’t read this page.

Don’t find below important information, coursework resources or local organisations with which to volunteer or campaign.

Did you know? Wales is very forward in its environmental thinking (more at bottom of page):

  • It has one of the toughest climate change targets in the world.
  • On 2 February 2016, the Assembly voted to pass the Environment (Wales) Bill into law, meaning Wales’ natural resources will be at the heart of every future decision.
