4theRegion is a purpose driven organisation with a mission to co-create a happier, healthier South West Wales with a thriving economy. Co-create means working together and we do this by running events, hosting conversations and leading grassroots projects across a range of different sectors, encouraging people and businesses to have a positive mindset about the region, and promoting collaboration towards shared outcomes.
4theRegion are keen to engage everyone who lives in the region in our mission, including young people, community groups, professionals, businesses, major employers and third sector organisations. 4theRegion is a membership organisation representing regional businesses, community groups and change-makers across South West Wales. 4theRegion is funded by membership subscriptions and sponsorship of the events we run. We connect people, share good news and enable collaboration, through our forums, events, projects and comms, for a future that promotes the well-being of people and planet. There is great stuff happening across our region, but people don’t know what others are doing. We champion the changemakers and share positive news, to connect likeminded people and great ideas. At 4theRegion we love where we live and want to help make it better – greener, happier, healthier, more resilient and more prosperous. We want to champion our region’s amazing people, places and opportunities, and work together to address the major challenges of our time. If we collaborate and stay true to our values, we can create a flourishing future for everyone in South West Wales. 4theRegion are not publicly funded or contracted to any public organisation. The company was founded independently by local entrepreneurs to take over from Swansea Bay Futures which closed in December 2017.
