The Prince of Wales to visit Size of Wales School

Size of Wales is very excited to announce a very special visit by the Prince of Wales:


24th February 2017

The Prince of Wales will meet school children taking part in a climate change education programme run by the charity, Size of Wales, at Blenheim Road Community Primary, Cwmbran.

Launched by The Prince of Wales in 2010, Size of Wales is a Cardiff-based charity which helps to protect an area of rainforest twice the size of Wales as part of Wales’ national response to climate change.

The climate change charity works with schools, employers and community groups across Wales to help protect four million hectares of rainforest in Africa and South America. Its education programme provides free assemblies and workshops to demonstrate the importance of rainforests and to empower young people to take action against climate change.

His Royal Highness will see this work in action when he attends a presentation by members of the primary school’s eco club, which took part in a workshop on rainforests and climate change run by Size of Wales on Go Green Day, the charity’s national day of action in October. The Prince will also plant a tree to launch the school’s twinning programme which links them, via Size of Wales, to a school in Uganda, which will also have a tree planted in its grounds.

Tropical rainforests absorb about a fifth of the world’s man-made CO2 emissions every year and are therefore vital in the fight against climate change.
