A group established in Swanage as part of the town’s ongoing efforts to become a more sustainable community and protect our precious environment
Our founding mission was to positively support the community of Swanage in reducing its waste, with an emphasis on plastic, but we have since expanded our work to include biodiversity and energy. We provide a link between different local organisations and groups and are working together to find solutions to issues that affect our local environment. We provide a central point of information for the community on these issues and provide a means of sharing good tips and connecting people. We are a positive group looking to the future and how we can all live more sustainably and become resilient to future stresses and challenges that we face in our community.
Where to find us:
We have one part-time staff member, Sarah Spurling who facilitates and supports the different projects and campaigns, and is the central point of contact. This role is funded by Swanage Town Council and hosted by the Dorset Coast Forum. There are also a growing number of volunteers involved in the group at varying levels and to suit their interests. To find out more about getting involved or get help with a project idea you may have, visit the project pages and/or get in touch.
