This model was designed and commissioned to enable us to engage with the public on issues surrounding waste water and pollution. The model is designed to connect people’s homes and businesses to the wider environment and enable an understanding of how the drainage system functions and what can affect it working properly. It has proven to be a very effective communication tool and will continue to be on tour at various events and venues in the coming year.
Fatberg & Toilet Models
We also commissioned models of a fatgerg and toilet to help us illustrate the problems they cause to the in Swanage.
Love Swanage Environment Day
We launched the campaign at Swanages first environment day in November 2018. The event brought together various groups and organisations working locally towards similar goals and included, Litter Free Purbeck, Durlston Country Park Ranger Team, Dorset Wildlife Trust and Wessex Water. We ran the event again in October 2019 where it grew to engage with more people and organisations.
Interactive Display at Swanage Tourist Information Centre
As part of the project, a fantastic new display has been designed and installed by talented Dorset artist Claire Nuttall. Pop along to the TIC on the seafront and take a look at the funky interactive model that highlights how visitors and residents alike can look after Swanage and keep it beautiful, through mindful, responsible behaviour.
