My Wild Newport

Newport is a vibrant, green city with wildlife right on our doorsteps. We want more people to have the opportunity to feel happier and healthier enjoying Newport's green spaces outdoors!

Gwent Wildlife Trust is working with Newport City Council, with funding from NRW, to help people to live healthier and more fulfilled lives though improved access to the outdoors for health and wellbeing. The My Wild Newport project is consolidating and developing urban engagement in Newport City, with the ultimate aim being to bring people closer to nature to improve their wellbeing.

We'd love to hear from any groups or organisations that would like to get involved: whether schools, other NGOs, health providers, local groups or businesses. Together, we want to promote, improve and increase access and use of green spaces in Newport.

If you're interested in having your views heard and getting involved, we've got 3 questions to start you off!
