|Latest green map
Sustainable Swansea has published its latest community green map focusing on the Central Swansea area.People living in the area helped put it together over the past year by identifying possible sites to include and by participating in photography sessions.
Green maps highlight the sustainable and environmental resources in a specific area which can include entries such as places to buy local food, places to recycle, community resources such as libraries, community centres, green open spaces and play areas, walks and natural features too. In fact anything that is seen as a sustainable or ‘green’ resource. Before this, eight community green maps have been produced in Swansea for areas such as Penlan, Castle, Townhill, Morriston, Pontarddulais, Gower, St Thomas and Port Tennant and the Penderry area.
Delyth Higgins, one of Sustainable Swansea’s Community Outreach Officers said,
“We are really pleased to be publishing another map and this time for community members and residents of the central Swansea area. It will be useful of course to visitors too. It was a difficult map to finalise as there are so many entries that could be put on there, which is fantastic from a sustainability point of view.”
Copies will be available in lots of places around the city centre including museums, community centres, housing offices, central library, cafes and of course from the Environment Centre in Pier street in the marina area.
