BRIDGES UK Hub, University of Wales Trinity Saint David

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David Hub represents the United Kingdom in the UNESCO Bridges Coalition.

Wales and the Welsh government’s forward thinking with regards the environment, sustainability, climate change, culture, community, and the future stands out in UK politics. With UWTSD’s focus on interfaith, intercultural peace promotion, Materialities and future generations, the UWTSD Hub aims to find new ways to generate discussion, stimulate research and produce strategies that allow multi-species, more-than-human communities to negotiate a new safe and fair pathway into our shared futures.

A Welsh hub not only fills a regional opening but also coupled with UWTSD’s newly aligned focus on the promotion of peace, it provides an additional dimension to the fullest notion of what sustainability might look like.

“What Wales is doing today, the world will do tomorrow.”

– Nikhil Seth, UN Assistant Secretary General
