Climate action - biodiversity

We rely on a healthy ecosystem of animals, plants and microorganisms, so biodiversity is essential for the processes that support all life on Earth, including humans.

Swansea Council action is led via an Energy and Carbon Management Strategic Plan. This identifies and analyses energy and carbon emissions from the Council's operational service areas and brings together all legislations and policies that relate to energy, carbon management and climate change. It helps all Council services adapt to low carbon ways of working and apply renewable technologies.


We currently sow around 40,000 square metres (almost 10 acres or about 6 football pitches) of wildflowers across approximately 190 sites in Swansea.

Environmental events

Free and low-cost events taking place between April and December in and around Swansea and Gower.
