We have published a new strategy, Cymru Can, which sets out our vision and purpose, and outlines five missions that my team and I are putting our energy behind from now until 2030.
Cymru Can summarises the approach we intend to take over the next seven years towards achieving our new vision. It sets out our five missions:
- Implementation and Impact
- Climate and Nature
- Health and Well-being
- Culture and Welsh Language
- A Well-being economy
We also identified topics, themes or systems that connect all our missions, such as the food system, artificial intelligence and digital, which we will explore in more detail.
Through delivering these, we will be able to tackle issues that people are concerned about like the health of our rivers, the housing shortage, ongoing inequality, and the cost-of-living crisis. And we will draw on the knowledge, insights and contacts that we have built during 2016-2023.
The WFG Act is broad in scope, and the Cymru Can approach is designed to ensure we can focus our work where it can be most effective.
We will shift resources to increase our engagement and expert advice to public bodies, in a way that recognises the pressures that they are under, to ensure that those who must apply the WFG Act have the awareness, understanding, confidence and tools they need to do it.
We’ll review and measure our approach as we go, involving others to make sure that we are always achieving the biggest impact we can with our resources.
Over the next few months, we will be joining forces with organisations and people who can help us achieve our missions. If you would like to be involved in this work, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
