Size of Wales is a unique national scheme to sustain an area of tropical forest the size of Wales as part of the national response to climate change.
Cynnal Cymru – Sustain Wales has been a supporting member of Size of Wales since the project launched in September 2010.
With a significant number of Network Partners, Cynnal Cymru supports Size of Wales by promoting the project to organisations with a large staff base, such as BT, or large supporter base, such as the Welsh Rugby Union.
We were delighted to help at the launch event in the National Botanic Garden of Wales by organising a workshop for our Network Partner organisations.
Cynnal Cymru also raised awareness of the project through the Wales Green List - a list of sustainable development champions compiled annually by Cynnal Cymru. Green Heroes are chosen from nominations by the public from across Wales and across the breadth of sustainable development. As part of the Size of Wales project, Cynnal Cymru has arranged for 104 trees to be planted in Boray, Kenya - one per Green Hero who has so far appeared on the Wales Green List. This was arranged through a 2009 Green Hero, Ru Hartwell, who was instrumental in establishing the Size of Wales project in 2008 and 2009.
We currently work in support of Peter Davies in his role as Sustainable Futures Commissioner. Peter Davies is project consultant for Wales’ Millennium Development Goals Task Force, which originally created Size of Wales. Peter continues to be on the project’s steering group.
