Healthy city built environment

The quality of our urban centres, neighbourhoods, transport systems and supporting infrastructure can all have a direct impact on our health and wellbeing.

Climate change presents a significant risk to the environments that people live in and to the health of present and future generations. The management of our natural resources and built environments can become more effective and sustainable with better understanding and active involvement of communities.

Swansea Environmental Forum is the strategic partnership for all aspects of the natural and built environment in Swansea. It aims to promote and facilitate environmental sustainability by influencing policy and action; driving behaviour change; encouraging and supporting partnership working; developing and supporting environmental projects and innovation; and by providing expertise, collating evidence and highlighting priority areas for action.

It does this by coordinating the Swansea Environment Strategy and several associated programmes and projects. Within the Swansea Healthy City Programme, Swansea Environmental Forum is working with partners to develop and oversee an action plan for Core Theme 4: 'Creating resilient communities and supportive environments' and will convene a working group; champion priority issues; deliver actions and lead projects; encourage and support collaboration; collate information and data; and monitor and report on progress.
