Summary

"What Wales is doing today, the world will do tomorrow.” (Nikhil Seth, UN assistant secretary general)

The story of how one small nation responded to global climate issues by radically rethinking public policy for future generations.

In #futuregen, Jane Davidson explains how, as minister for environment, sustainability and housing in Wales, she proposed the Well-Being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 - the first piece of legislation on Earth to place regenerative and sustainable practice at the heart of government. Unparalleled in its scope and vision, the Act connects environmental and social health and looks to solve complex issues such as poverty, education, and unemployment.

Davidson reveals how and why such groundbreaking legislation was forged in Wales - once reliant on its coal, iron, and steel industries - and explores how the shift from economic growth to sustainable growth is creating new opportunities for communities and governments all over the world.

#futuregen is the inspiring story of a small, pioneering nation discovering prosperity through its vast natural beauty, renewable energy resources, and resilient communities. It’s a living, breathing prototype for local and global leaders as proof of what is possible in the fight for a sustainable future.
