Group XR Swansea
A great turnout of people joined us on 3rd August to help build a better future.
This was also be a celebration of the City and County of Swansea declaring a Climate Emergency.

The Procession started at 12.00 from Toys “R” Us, Park Tawe, Swansea and led up into the town – led by a 10’ walking tree, with our choir singing and our Samba Band playing- not at the same time I hasten to add!

Once in town, there were 3 local Swansea bands playing, a punk poet performing, face painting, badge making, tshirt printing, free vegan food, workshops for adults and children, an information tent on Extinction Rebellion and the Climate Crisis, Circus Skills, Storytelling and much more….

People wore colourful clothes, brought placards & pictures with bees, insects, butterflies, flowers, plants and even small trees to green the area.

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.

Lleisiau Bach LittleVoices yw’r dull a ddefnyddir gan Arsyllfa Cymru ar Hawliau Dynol Plant a Phobl Ifanc i rymuso plant fel ymchwilwyr ac fel eiriolwyr er mwyn helpu i sicrhau bod hawliau dynol yn rhan annatod o fywyd plant bob dydd ac er mwyn eu galluogi i gyd-gynhyrchu newid mewn modd oed-gynhwysol.  Mae’r Arsyllfa yn fenter ym Mhrifysgol Abertawe a Phrifysgol Bangor, sy’n gweithio gydag ystod eang o bartneriaid a disgyblaethau i helpu i sicrhau bod hawliau dynol plant a phobl ifanc yn cael eu parchu, eu diogelu a’u bodloni.

  • cefnogi plant ac oedolion i fynd ati’n effeithiol i gyd-gynhyrchu newid; 

  • creu cymunedau buddiant sy’n gallu ac yn ymrwymedig i normaleiddio’r gwaith o gyd-gynhyrchu penderfyniadau a newidiadau mewn modd oed-gynhwysol
