Menter y Felin Uchaf talks to WISE Network

Menter y Felin Uchaf is a land-based social enterprise on the Llŷn Peninsula offering training courses and workshops specialising in traditional skills and a year-round programme of cultural events. A new Centre for Living Arts & Science is opening soon which will host a new visitor centre.

The WISE Network Team and Menter y Felin Uchaf have been collaborating on projects that contribute to the development of the organisation and the wider community on the Llŷn:

  • A biodiversity baseline survey (plants and animals) and a habitat management plan for the site
  • A mapping exercise using GIS looking at the present provision of services, attractions and accommodation on the Llŷn for visitors
  • Development of a new map-based mobile ‘app’ showing all the local attractions and services
  • • In-depth research on opportunities to sustainably develop the tourist industry on the Llŷn, bringing economic and social benefits to the community whilst preserving the environment
