Sgema helping to create a rural think tank for Wales

Jul 18, 2023

Sgema is proud to announce its role as a supporting partner in creating a think tank looking at matters affecting rural Wales.

Arsyllfa is a startup project that will be looking at the issues facing the Welsh countryside, the rural economy and the communities that form it. The team at Arsyllfa have a special interest in how we all can face future developments in an often challenging and quickly changing rural context. Working in co-operation with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Sgema hopes to see Arsyllfa grow into a forum that will include all interested parties in an ongoing discussion regarding the Welsh countryside. By bringing together different levels of government, businesses, charities, organisations, community groups and citizens, Arsyllfa hopes to foster an environment in which meaningful discussions about the prospects for the future of Welsh rural life are held.

It will have a particular focus on innovation and new ways of working and seeking creative solutions to new and established issues facing rural communities. Climate change and departure from the EU are amongst many factors affecting how business is done in the Welsh countryside and Arsyllfa aims to be key player in finding positive solutions to often challenging circumstances and uncertain times. To find out more about Arsyllfa and their work, you can learn more on their website or by signing up to their weekly newsletter, sent out every Wednesday.
