Q: We want to set an example to our children by running an environmentally friendly setting – where can I get some advice?

A:

Local Authorities can be contacted for the following information:

• The Road Safety Officer can advise on safe routes to school and a walking bus scheme.

• Waste management or recycling department can provide information on recycling schemes.

• Countryside or tourism department-for parks, nature reserves and other places to visit.

 

Other useful organisations may include:

• Centre for Alternative Technology www.cat.org.uk 01654 705950

• Learning Through Landscapes www.ltl.org.uk

• The Fairtrade Foundation www.fairtrade.org.uk

• Keep Wales Tidy www.keepwalestidy.org

• National Museum of Wales, Cardiff www.museumwales.ac.uk

 

It may also be worthwhile to be aware of environmental events such as:

• Wales Biodiversity Week www.biodiversitywales.org.uk

• World Environment Day www.unep.org/wed/2007/english/

• National Tree Week www.treecouncil.org.uk

• World Day for Water www.unesco.org/water

 

Recycled resources can be bought from your local ‘scrap store’ or ‘resource centre’ and children and parents can be encouraged to collect materials.
