CEREDIGION360 - GOLWG CYF
As an outcome of the Bro360 pilot project, Golwg will undertake a feasibility study, Ceredigion360 to discover whether there is a desire to create and maintain lively, sustainable local area websites across the whole of Ceredigion, and create a sustainable commercial model to make a difference to more communities – with regard to the Welsh language, community development and the local economy.
The aim of the Ceredigion360 project is to:
- Explore the demand and interest amongst communities to create local story and communication websites and extending the current network of local area websites in Ceredigion to include the whole county;
- Explore the gaps with regard to IT skills and the ability to use IT and the Welsh language amongst local communities
- Explore the demand by businesses and customers for a new Welsh language platform to promote local commerce, especially in view of the impacts of Covid-19
- Explore methods of financing the maintenance of ultra-local websites in a sustainable way
If the feasibility study confirms there is a demand for developing local area websites in the rest of Ceredigion, the aim would then be to invest in extending the network of local area websites, adding to Ceredigion’s current successful websites.
