Policymaking for Future Generations: A Blueprint For A Green Future

One Young World, the global forum for young leaders, in collaboration with the Future Generations Commission for Wales, is hosting an immersive panel on the topic of carving a path to net zero, where young leaders and innovation play a key role in the vision and establishment of a green future. Too often legislation regarding sustainable development plans – the creation of smart cities, changes in infrastructure, sustainable travel and urban expansion – are made without the consultation and expertise of young people who will be most affected by these designs and targets. Including young people as key decision-makers when creating the literal blueprints for their futures is crucial.

The Welsh government is one of the first to meaningfully incorporate the wellbeing of Future Generations into current policymaking. The Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 is a ground-breaking piece of legislation which requires public bodies to put long-term sustainability at the forefront of their thinking.

Join us for a dynamic panel featuring expert speakers and young leaders, offering key insights into the future of sustainable development, the path to net zero, and the essential role young people will play in achieving these goals.
