Does your business, charity or organisation work in partnership with the public sector?
Do you respond to public sector procurement tenders?

Two pieces of legislation – The Well-being of Future Generations Act (WFG Act) and The Environment Act will have a major impact on the economy of Wales.


These sessions are suitable for anyone who is able to influence the plans and approaches of their organisation and whose role involves some level of oversight or strategy. The session can be mixed or for colleagues from a single organisation.


This interactive seminar will focus on the following:

  • Background and context to the WFG and Environment Acts
  • What the legislation is trying to achieve
  • How your organisation could work towards implementing the National Well-being Goals
  • How to begin reporting what you do in the context of the goals and how doing so will be beneficial for your organisation
  • What the legislation requires from Public Service Bodies and how this might impact on the private, social and voluntary sectors
  • What the legislation means for Wales, for business in Wales and for doing business with Wales

The aim is to help professionals to re-assess their strategies, business and service-delivery models so that they can be coherent with the WFG and Environment Acts. We want to help organisations to carry on delivering their core purpose – selling products, providing services – but in a way that helps Wales move towards the national goals; low carbon, resource efficient prosperity with cohesive communities, healthy citizens, a rich culture and a position of global leadership.


We will run these sessions on a regular basis – look at our events page to check the date of the next session. Fee per person = £70 plus VAT.

We can also arrange a bespoke session for a particular organisation for up to fifteen people = £350 (charity/small business/public rate) and £500 (larger business rate) plus VAT.

“We are very pleased with the facilitation and training service provide by Cynnal Cymru. They provided a structured basis for our senior management team to critically analyse our strategy in relation to sustainability in Wales with particular reference to the important Well-being of Future Generations Act. Their knowledge of policy and the subject matter blended well with their facilitation skills. The training methods employed were appropriate, focused and relevant and the session was well-received by staff across the organisation.”
