As a rural watchdog we campaign to:  

Increase public awareness of the importance of                            
landscapes and seascapes

Promote their responsible care and use.

Defend the qualities that make rural Wales special.                                  

Influence decision makers to guide responsible change and
 oppose then they don't.

Promote landscapes as inspiring places for learning, personal development and wellbeing.

Celebrate and enjoy Wales' heritage of landscapes, culture and rural life.

Rural Wales Awards

award   Our prestigious Rural Wales Awards sponsored by Post Office (Cymru)
   recognise projects which demonstrate outstanding  environmental good
   practice or promote  improved awareness and understanding of our
   Welsh heritage.

    Since 1983 these Awards have showcased those individuals
    and communities who have made a difference.

    By caring for the places they value, our Awards recognise tomorrow's "Place makers".
