About Size of Wales

Size of Wales was launched in 2010 and is based in Cardiff. We work to mobilise Wales to protect tropical forests and restore tropical forest landscapes as part of Wales’ national response to climate change. Our approach to this is two-fold:

  • We engage people across Wales through education and awareness raising activities. This includes an education programme in schools and our annual Go Green Day campaign.
  • We support a number of overseas projects that protect and/or restore tropical forests. Each project works to empower local communities to take positive action. Our partners on these projects include WWF, Forest Peoples Programme and Flora & Fauna International. The projects we currently support are helping to protect and restore an area more than twice the size of Wales. The projects are located in Africa, South America and South East Asia.

We receive funding from The Waterloo Foundation, Welsh Government, ScottishPower Foundation and more recently, the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, as well as several other trusts/foundations. We are also supported by schools, businesses and individuals.

This is an exciting time for Size of Wales. We will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary in 2020 and will be launching an ambitious new 5 year strategy seeking to respond to the climate emergency and to mobilise Wales to achieve maximum impact for tropical forests.  This will include substantially expanding our fundraising efforts and adding new programmes of work including a policy and advocacy programme with the aim of eliminating imported deforestation from Wales’ economy.
