Many governments around the world are looking at how they can develop policy that reflects the needs of future generations as well as those currently living. The United Nations has developed a policy document calling for governments to “to act in a way that preserves [future generations’] ability to effectively enjoy all human rights and determine their own needs in the future has already been enshrined in countless international agreements and in the very concept of sustainable development”, and the devolved Welsh Government has created a Future Generations Commissioner to act as a “disruptor” to make government and policy makers think long-term.

This webinar will provide guidance and insight on how governments can make sure that policymaking takes account of future generations, discussing the key elements government departments need to consider to make sure they are preparing for the future, and policymaking can be developed to incorporate the interests of future generations.
