We are keen on engaging with communities to take action on climate change as well as to inspire others. The climate emergency is one that affects all of us, hence it's important that we all work together to help combat it.

If you live in Wales, we would love to hear from you! 

All responses are anonymous and will be used only for the purposes of informing project design.

Help us shape a climate action project you would like to see and engage with in your region by answering a few questions

Join (SYLN) SSAP Youth Leadership Network at the prestigious Royal Stuart Workshops as they host their Changing Our Climate workshop for all, who would like support and a better understanding of how to be more sustainable in the fashion industry. The event will offer attendees proactive tips to reduce their carbon footprint. The event agenda is as follows:

  • 6 - 6:15pm | Introduction and Ice breaker
  • 6:15 - 6:45pm | A discussion on fast fashion and its effect on the environment.

The climate emergency is one of the many issues facing young people today. Climate action is a priority that begins with education and a commitment to adopt changes to how we live our everyday lives on our planet. Changing daily habits and being conscious of our environmental decisions enables us to transform our local communities and save our planet.

Spring Courses : Power and Priviledge

The next instalment in our Springboard series of free online courses is delivered in collaboration with our partner Sub-Sahara Advisory Panel.

The Springboard courses will provide you with support to increase your organisation’s knowledge and improve its practices in project development and delivery. You will also be able to access resources and tools to support your growth.

Each course will require a time commitment of 20 hours over 8 weeks for you to get the most out of your learning. The course will be delivered through a mixture of self-learn workbooks and Hub Cymru Africa-hosted Zoom Meetings. With your peers and the Hub Cymru Africa team to support your learning, you will put your learning into practice by applying it to your own work. Partners in Wales and Africa are welcome to join. You will need stable access to the internet as the course is delivered through our website and in Zoom Meetings.

The Power and Privilege course will include:

  • An overview of power within the global solidarity sector and the face of privilege within traditional aid and development by exploring its history and present legacy
  • Power structures and the ways in which they intersect and amplify oppression as well as how this manifests within global solidarity sector
  • Identifying positionality within intersecting power structures and how to confront these without hostility or disillusion
  • Ways to cede power within partnerships and the ways in which individuals and groups can use their unique position of power and/or privilege to further sustainably strengthen work in global solidarity.

Finally, we will facilitate discussions to help develop action points, based on learning, specific to individuals’ and groups’ areas of work.

For any questions, please email Cath on:
