Where it all began:
A group of concerned residents from the Dartmouth Cluster of communities recently launched Sustainable Dartmouth, a project aimed at increasing awareness amongst residents, local Councils, businesses and other organizations, of the vital importance of environmental issues.
Apart from learning what we can do personally to help the natural world, we have launched a website forum, responded to the Dartmouth Neighbourhood Development Consultation, linked up with existing sustainability groups within the Dartmouth Cluster and we are developing publicity material for distribution to local organizations, businesses and individuals.
Sustainable Dartmouth evolved from the group DAFFS chaired by Steve Smith before he retired to read a good book!
Sustainable Dartmouth was briefly known as Dartmouth Area For Future Sustainability – DAFFS for short.
Local artist Simon Drew generously designed their logo to fit.
DAFFS started with a mission
”DAFFS is a group of concerned local residents, organisations and businesses that are getting together to respond positively to the global Climate and Biodiversity Emergency declared by Devon County Council, South Hams District Council and many towns, villages and businesses within the county. We pledge to play a part in facing these environmental emergencies. We believe that we can benefit from joining with others, and enjoy finding satisfying, sustainable styles of work and leisure, which harmonise with the needs of the wider world”.
SUSTAINABLE DARTMOUTH continues with the team from DAFFS and new members.
