Young People Cycle for Sustainable Development

Eight young people from all over Wales met with Mid Wales Permaculture Network Co-ordinator Roz Brown on 18 August as they cycled the 150 miles from Machyntlleth to the Senedd in Cardiff to focus awareness on sustainable development. The group were all members of the youth-led Welsh Youth Forum on Sustainable Devlopment.

They meet to learn practical ways to halt climate change, like building a wind turbine, and, for the second year running, made the trip from Mid Wales to take wyfsd visittheir message to the Welsh Assembly Government, and spread the word to their own generation. They were accompanied by their support workers, the poet Martin Daws and his colleague Caris. Ages in the group ranged from 11 to 24, and the cyclists were accompanied on this leg of the journey, on Route 8 of the Lon Las Cymru from Llanidloes to Builth Wells, by Sustrans ranger Steve Barrett, from Llanidloes.

Roz Brown invited the cyclists to lunch and a tour of the Permaculture garden and longhouse at Nannerth Ganol, the Network HQ, on behalf of Transition Town Rhayader.  The visitors were treated to a Welsh menu of traditional fayre including cawl and bara brith, and wyfsd lunchthe cyclists showed their appreciation with several poems, in Welsh and English, which they wrote during lunch and read out ceremonially in front of the ancient longhouse before departing.

It was an inspiring event, and has established firm links with the group for the future. Some members in the Swansea area are in the process of acquiring an allotment, and want advice on how to develop it along Permaculture lines. Altogether a good piece of networking all round!
