When we work together, our common ground becomes our path to progress. That is how we turn ideas into action, and action into lasting systems change.
That’s exactly what happened in Wales. It started as a radical idea, the first of its kind: The Future Generations Act, weaving together regeneration and social justice for generations to come. It’s time England followed suit.
Now? They have the ‘world’s first commissioner of the unborn’, responsible for delivering social, economic and cultural well-being for current and future generations.
How does it work? How do we measure impact on the future? Are mindsets changing in Wales? Is the act creating the systems change it set out to achieve? Why do we need an act for future generations? And what can England and beyond learn from Wales, as the Future Generations Bill is brought to Parliament?
