Map of the area


The Dyfi Valley is an area of outstanding natural beauty and internationally significant habitats, with numerous national and local nature reserves. Its most obvious asset is its landscape.

But it is also 'green' in a more human way. Recognised as the unofficial UK capital of sustainable development, the Dyfi Valley is rich in communities, individuals and businesses who have led the way in promoting environmental, economic and cultural sustainability.

The Centre for Alternative Technology arose from concern about the global environment and issues of international development and justice. The starting points for others are local needs and traditions under threat.

All these people are working to create a prosperous rural community, fuelled by wind, water and solar power, where what is produced - foods, arts, crafts, talents - has a local demand.

This depends on the sound management of natural and cultural assets, for the benefit of local people, visitors and the wider environment.
