We were very honoured to be invited by Renew Wales, one of our partner organisations, to join them for a chat about biodiversity and green spaces as part of their new podcast series, ‘Renew Wales in conversation’.
Our Biodiversity & Community Engagement rep, Jeremy Wadia, joined fellow podcast guest Ian Thomas, of Welcome to Our Woods, and the Renew Wales host and one of their Pembrokeshire mentors, Jasmine Dale, for a great 30 minute chat. The group discussed why biodiversity is important to them, the challenges facing their areas with regards to volunteers and local understanding of issues, some of the current projects and the importance of collaboration and local action, and some wishes for the future! Hopefully you may enjoy it and it might even spark some ideas, debate and interest in getting more involved. Check it out below and let us know what you think.
More info on Renew Wales: Renew Wales is a practitioner-led programme helping communities in Wales reduce their carbon footprint, adapt to the impacts of climate change and live more sustainably. Working through a network of Local Coordinators, hosted in local third sector organisations, Renew links community groups with Peer Mentors – experienced people who can offer their advice, inspiration and knowledge to enable others to take their first steps towards action on climate change. Renew was set up and is supported by a group of organisations with a long track record of community development and climate change action, and is run by a small team within the Development Trusts Association Wales (DTA Wales). It is funded by the Sustainable Steps programme delivered through the Community Fund.
