What attracted you to do this role?
Climate change is not simply an environmental problem. It has implications for the well being of communities in Wales but there is huge potential for them to tackle both the causes and consequences of climate change. Through supporting and training community leaders to enable them to take action and support others in their communities we can improve resilience to the impacts of climate change and deliver sustainable communities and services on issues such as food, housing, waste, energy and transport.
