The Well-being of Future Generations Act seeks to transform the way public bodies in Wales are improving our social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being. The work we do in Wales continues to inspire organisations and governments internationally

The Well-being of Future Generations Act remains the only legislation of its type in the World and has been regarded, by the United Nations as a role-model for other countries to follow. Since the Act was passed, our office has supported many international organizations in adopting the Act’s principles.

Global challenges facing our country are complex and shared by many around the globe. The Commissioner work draws upon international examples and case studies. We actively seek to learn from others and share our work to better assist public bodies here in Wales.

This section outlines the work we’re doing to advocate the Act to the World and how we’re ensuring we bring the World to Wales.

In his visit to Wales in 2015, Nikhil Seth (Former Head of Sustainable Development at the United Nations) said;

“We hope that what Wales is doing today the world will do tomorrow. Action, more than words, is the hope for our current and future generations.”

Wales to the World
