Description

The Environment Centre Swansea is a local independent Registered Charity, helping put the environment and sustainability first in South West Wales. The Centre has a programme of educational talks for schools, teacher training, environmental workshops for adults, and events throughout the year such as Swansea's popular Green Fayre.

The building is an old Edwardian Telephone Exchange based in Swansea's Maritime Quarter, and houses environmental information, books and magazines, examples of renewable energy and sustainable building technique, Green Shop, Fairtrade coffee shop, meeting space and rooms for hire, organic garden, and other green organisations such as Swansea Fair Trade Forum, Swansea Environmental Forum, Groundwork, BTCV, Sustainable Swansea, One People and Undercurrents. The Centre is a great community space and relies on volunteers to help run and maintain the building.
