Welsh Government's 'deep dive' into #renewables is complete! https://gov.wales/written-statement-outcome-deep-dive-renewable-energy
There are some interesting proposals here:
* Ambition to scale up much more renewable energy 📈
* Develop a National Energy Plan by 2024 📑
* Supporting behaviour change (this is vital!!) ✊👏
* A Wales Energy System Architect 🤔🧐
* A review of the consenting process ✔️
* Using procurement to support the sector 💷
* Support for community energy 🦸
This looks interesting - Welsh Government has set up a blog seeking views on the development of streams of work arising from the WFG legislation
Take a look and submit your comments - we are really pleased that the blog has an RSS feed to streamline keeping up with the news!

This US article (https://modernfarmer.com/2021/05/opinion-the-case-for-putting-climate-labels-on-meat/) about putting carbon labels on food products is a good read - and it references a peer-reviewed paper (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0306919221000142) showing that even climate sceptics choose lower-carbon products when provided with information 🙌👏
Black Mountains College in the #breconbeacons is looking for a teacher for seasonal catering, sustainable coppicing and green wood skills. 2 days a week. A brilliant opportunity to teach practical skills to the next generations ✊🧑🪵🧑🍳
Blue Carbon - that which is stored in marine habitats - has a very important role to play in balancing the flow of carbon in our ecosystems.
However, a range of human activity is making our marine environment less resilient, and less able to play a role in maintaining our climate equilibrium.

The #Senedd's cross-party group on Active Travel has published their manifesto for the #Senedd21 elections https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BGf8nqOO_FpMyzuyVvNyYLaZhUMc7BZq/view
The proposals include:
*Restrictions on car use within 400m of schools
*20mph as the default urban speed limit
*Prioritising active travel in all new developments
*Making walkable neighbourhoods the norm
This long list is worth a look - not least to give ideas to others who might want to lobby public bodies on #activetravel
As @davidoclubb highlighted in his blog post last year (https://afallen.cymru/2019/11/13/wales-underwater/), #Wales will see significant additional #flooding risk as sea level rise meets increased rainfall intensity. #Newport is likely to be hit hard, and we're pleased to see that the Council is currently discussing the issue. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-54011469
