Acting today for a better tomorrow: Understanding the Act

The Well-being of Future Generations Act is changing the way we do things here in Wales, from how we plan services, to how we work together, to how we buy things. The Act has galvanised our ambition to be a country that support environmental, economic, social and cultural well-being of people today and those yet to be born. Knowledge and understanding of the Act is essential for people working in and with the public sector as we work together to realise our goals.

This session will aim to introduce you to the Act or provide you with a refresh of its ambitions (well-being goals), how these are realised (the ways of working) and sustainable development principle.

Through this session you will:

  • Increase your knowledge on the Well-being of Future Generations Act and what it means for public bodies.
  • Deepen your understanding of how the sustainable development principle shapes and influences how public bodies work.
  • Develop skills in acting in accordance with the sustainable development principle (centred around the five ways of working).
  • Use resources and tools intended to help you take learning away and apply it to your own work.

At the end of the session you’ll be able to:

  • Talk about the Well-being of Future Generations Act and why it is such an important piece of legislation.
  • Explain your organisations’ role under the legislation.
  • Give an example of when and how to use the ways of working.

This session may be particularly of interest to people who would like an introduction or refresh to the Act – perhaps new staff members, those returning to work, those working in sections of public bodies less exposed to corporate training on the Act, newly Elected Officials etc.
