SDG17: Partnership for the Goals

At Sustainable Newport we’re passionate about seeking and sharing the work of other organisations who support the Worlds to do list. Our planet needs us, and it’s only through partnerships and working together that we’ll be able to make progress towards the goals.

If you have a local group who would like us to support your work, or if you’d like to invite us to come and talk to your group about our work please use the contact us link. A selection of talks which we’ve given over the last few years are:

  • Supporting Newport (Single Use) Plastic Free Community Scheme
  • Savings ideas: for the planet and your pocket
  • The Waste Hierarchy: Why Reduce and Reuse before Recycle

If you’re interested in volunteering to support our activities please contact us. We appreciate everyones involvement and support, so whether you’d like to help with our social media and web presence, man our stand at a local event, or want to come along to meetings to hear and share ideas please get in touch.
