The SRtRC Wales team was honoured to be recognised as one of the 100 top ‘Changemakers’ in outgoing Future Generations Commissioner, Sophie Howe’s, definitive list.
The list recognises the work of those individuals or organisations that have influenced and continue to influence for positive change across Wales and uphold the values of a unique piece of legislation, the Future Wellbeing of Future Generations Act.
This Act bounds policy makers to take consideration of the impact that every new piece of policy or legislation may have on future generations. It is described as ensuring that we are a nation of ‘good ancestors’.
By placing the whole SRtRC team on this list, the Commissioner sought to recognise the direct work with children, young people and adults, as well as the agitation for change at the policy level.
The recognition ceremony took place on 24th January with a key note speech from First Minister, Mark Drakeford.
On behalf of the team at SRtRC, we pay tribute to the impact and enthusiasm that Sophie Howe has brought to the role of Future Generations Commissioner and welcome Derek Walker to the post from March.
