Volunteer work with ecodyfi

Our vision is for the Dyfi valley to be a thriving bilingual community with a reputation for sustainability.

It is based on the following ideas:

  • Strengthening the local economy is the key to meeting social needs

  • Tourism and farming are the most important local industries.

  • The only kind of tourism that will succeed here is sustainable tourism. Short-term fixes will not do. Equally, the only kind of farming that will succeed here is sustainable farming.

  • Local distinctiveness is the key to success in many markets nowadays, particularly in tourism and increasingly in local produce (including foodstuffs).

  • Food, holiday and other products will all benefit from being associated with a clean, green image of the valley - where the Dyfi valley is a leader in sustainable community regeneration.

  • Globalisation of production and distribution systems leads to unsustainable levels of resource use and waste creation and makes local economies more vulnerable to external factors. Reversing this trend is sometimes called "relocalisation".

Our mission is "to foster sustainable community regeneration in the Dyfi valley".

Local needs must be met within a long-term vision. This implies attention to global as well as local environmental sustainability, to the robustness of the local economy and to the capacity of local people to take responsibility.
