This is an exciting time for the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act as the term of the first Future Generations Commissioner comes to an end and the new Commissioner will start soon. At this important milestone, we are pausing to reflect and recognise the progress and achievements of many who are bringing about change in the context of the Well-being of Future Generations Act and to reflect on what’s next.
Our team have been working with others to capture the many people and organisations part of this movement for change. We have developed a range of materials that showcase this and we would like others in the movement for change to help us spread the word through their networks, communication channels and webpages – see attached toolkit.
We also encourage you to share how your organisation, an individual or organisation you know, or even your community are acting today for a better tomorrow. We would like this to be a celebration everyone gets involved in!
The materials are now live on Friday, 2nd December – World Futures Day. So, we would encourage everyone to help us in highlighting throughout December what is changing as a result of the Well-being of Future Generations Act in areas like transport, health, curriculum and waste. And please also share your positive stories.
In January, the focus will be on recognising who’s making that change happen from teachers, medics, community and businesses–leaders; based in schools, recycling centres, building societies, local authorities, construction sites and tourist destinations.
Find out more in the attached toolkit. I would be grateful if you could pass this on to colleagues, such as your Communications Team. This communications campaign will continue throughout December and January so there’s plenty of time to join in!
Thank you in advance for your help!
