Securing the Wellbeing of Future Generations

IPANZ and SOLGM hosted this webinar with Dr Jane Davidson (a former Minister for the Environment and Sustainability in Wales) and Jacob Ellis (from the Office of the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales).

This inspiring conversation brought together the political and administrative perspectives of planning for future generations, enabling us to draw lessons for Aotearoa/New Zealand. It covers how the Wellbeing Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 was established, and progress in implementing its aspirations.

These are critical issues for public sector professionals in local and central government, in our shared worlds where embedding effective, systemic, long-term thinking and action is of utmost importance. For IPANZ members, the principle of stewardship in our new Public Service Act and our wellbeing framework, makes this even more important.

You can view the full recording of the webinar and at PowerPoint presentation prepared by Jane and Jacob.
