An excellent blog on digital democracy using the VocalEyes platform has been published on the Teaching Times website here:
https://www.teachingtimes.com/pupil-voice-digital-democracy-and-global-citizenship/

Digital Democracy can be a great way of ensuring the voices of all children and young people in a school are heard. Sue Lyle and Peter Anderson report on how the digital platform, VocalEyes can be used to support Pupil Voice and lead to serious action for change in schools and community.

Climate and Community are very busy clearing land for new trees for a hazel coppice on Mansel Green in Murton. Historically the land is grazing common land but the main road that cuts through Clyne Common has stopped the majority of animals grazing on Mansel Green for many years. Bramble and bracken took over and it was inaccessible apart from a few pathways through the undergrowth.Over the last year Climate and Community have removed bramble and bracken from many areas and grass has returned. They are planting many variety of trees and have pollarded the mature trees already growing there.


This is such a positive project with loads of ideas such as no-dig food growing and involving communities from Swansea. 
They have plans to create 7 areas of hazel coppice over the next 7 years. Coppiced wood is invaluable for building materials and for converting into bio-char to add to the soil. (The project is inspired by Ed Revill's growing project on South Gower and his biochar pioneering work). 


Tuesdays have now been set as a weekly workday. It would be great to have a large group of people working together and sharing food and conversation too. Car parking available across the road at Bishopston Community Centre or the number 14 bus from Swansea bus station takes you right there.



If you want to get involved please contact Bob and Jules on 07964 530436 or climateandcommunity@btinternet.com or Val on 07533 711 506. Also if you know of any community groups that may be interested in participating, contact Jules and Bob. Volunteer expenses are provided plus unlimited cups of tea and coffee with biscuits!

As most of the ideas put forward on the Vocaleyes Platform have been of an environmental nature. This has given the Community Council the impetus to declare a Climate Emergency for Pennard Ward. During the next six months we will be seeking advice and working with the Community to produce a plan for a carbon zero future for Pennard. If you are interested in helping us achieve these goals, we would love to hear from you.  Our vision is to include all demographics within the Community.
