Climate Action

This project is aimed at educating ethnically diverse communities in Swansea on the importance of leading sustainable lives and adopting eco-friendly practices. 

We support these communities to live these lifestyles through our Community Transport and Foodbank services which help reduce our collective carbon footprint and ensure we are making the most of available resources.
