Details of the Act can be found here - Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 

The Act includes 7 goals: 

  • A prosperous Wales – An innovative, productive and low carbon society which recognises the limits of the global environment and therefore uses resouces efficiently and proportionately (including acting on climate change), and which develops a skilled and well-educated population in an economy which generates wealth and provides employment opportunities, allowing people to take advantage of the wealth generated through securing decent work.
  • A resilient Wales – A nation which maintains and enhances a biodiverse natural environment with health functioning ecosystems that support social, economic and ecological resilience and the capacity to adapt to change (for example climate change).
  • A healthier Wales – A society in which people’s physical and mental well-being is maximised and in which choices and behaviours that benefit future health are understood.
  • A more equal Wales – A society that enables people to fulfil their potential no matter what their background or circumstances (inc their socio economic background and circumstances).
  • A Wales of cohesive communities – Attractive, viable, safe and well-connected communities.
  • A Wales of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language – A society that promotes and protects culture, heritage and the Welsh language, and which encourages people to participate in the arts, and sports and recreation.
  • A globally responsive Wales – A nation which, when doing anything to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales, takes account of whether doing anything such a thing may make a positive contribution to global well-being. 

In the summer of 2017 we will be formulating task groups of Fellows to discuss how we could work within these key themes that are so aligned to the RSA.
