Morning, Thursday, 27th June 2019

Central Cardiff

 

Note: fees apply to most delegates, but concessionary and complimentary places are available (subject to terms and conditions - see below).

This seminar focuses on well-being in Wales and will assess progress on implementing measures in the 2015 Well-being of Future Generations Act.

It will be a timely opportunity for policymakers and key stakeholders to review the first annual reports from the Public Service Boards (PSBs) and their Well-being Plans, and to discuss further priorities, next steps, and sharing lessons learnt and best practice.

As discussion will focus on the work of PSBs, especially with regard to local well-being plans, we thought this might be of particular interest. There will also be speaking contributions from Clare Pillman, Chief Executive, Natural Resources Wales and Duncan Mackenzie, Senior Consultant, Data Cymru.

Delegates will discuss how PSBs and other public bodies are meeting their duties under the Act - which includes a requirement to take future public well-being into account when making decisions.

They will consider evidence, research and data on what is currently working and what is not, and how experience so far might affect the future direction of policy and development of good practice.

Planned sessions will bring out insights into PSB work in practice, the challenges faced and how they are being addressed, including how citizens can be better involved in designing and delivering policy, as well as how bodies can be held accountable for their working.

We also expect discussion of innovative practice with examples that have brought about benefits for communities and more widely.

Further discussion will look at how such practice can be effectively shared and replicated across Wales - looking at the culture, mindset, resources and leadership needed to cultivate innovative practice, and the potential pitfalls that need to be avoided if communities are to make the most of the well-being plans.

Overall areas for discussion include:

  • Implementation - next steps for Public Service Board working and identifying solutions for local needs;
  • Assessment - priorities for accountability strategies, and how well-being plans can be effectively scrutinised in their locality; and
  • Sharing good practice - looking at various examples of innovation which have improved outcomes under the 4 pillars - economic, social, cultural and environmental.

The draft agenda is copied below my signature, and a regularly updated version is available to download here. The seminar is organised on the basis of strict impartiality by the Policy Forum for Wales. Follow us @PFWEvents for live updates.
