#FutureGen: Lessons from a Small Country
Jane Davidson will share the story from her book #futuregen, which describes how Wales responded to global climate issues by radically rethinking public policy for future generations, through the unique Well-Being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015. When she was Minister for Environment, Sustainability and Housing in Welsh Government, she proposed the first piece of legislation in history to place regenerative and sustainable practice at the heart of government. Unparalleled in scope and vision, the Act connects social, environmental, economic and cultural wellbeing and looks to solve complex issues through better decision-making.
This event offers people the chance to reflect on the importance of using windows of opportunity to press for systemic political and cultural institutional change and explore how CCA members can use these to support the goals of CCA to tackle climate change.
The session is our monthly meeting of CCA Political Pod. We meet every first Wednesday or Thursday of the month at 08:00 UTC (09:00 BST / 17:30 ACST).
PLEASE NOTE THIS SESSION WILL BE RECORDED FOR USE IN THE CCA SEEDBANK WHICH WILL BE FREELY AVAILABLE TO VISITORS TO THE CCA WEBSITE. BY BOOKING YOU ARE AGREEING TO THIS HAPPENING, THANK YOU.
