WCVA Launch New Resources and Guidance for the Third Sector
The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act marks a turning point in the sustainable development of Wales. In order to create the Wales We Want organisations need to enhance our natural resources as well as championing people power.
To tackle these big issues WCVA/ Environet Cymru have put together some handy toolkits to help you take positive actions for a better Wales, now and in the future.
The third sector contributes greatly towards the achievement of the goals and these factsheets and animation aim to help groups think more about their contributions in the context of the goals; enabling them to demonstrate the impact that they’re making.
The resources include an introduction to the Act, providing an overview of the Well-being of Future Generations Act as an innovative and practical policy; requiring public bodies underpin their work and decision making by working following five principles and in contribution to the 7 goals of the Act. They also provide information about why the Act has been developed and the role it plays in ensuring sustainable development of Wales.
There is a factsheet and animated explanation for each of the 7 goals which gives information about why the goals are important, how the third sector contributes and what we can do maximise our contributions. There are also statistics for reference and links to useful resources and support services.
Environet would like to promote these useful resources far and wide so please feel free to share them with as many people as you can!
