    The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act remains a global standard-bearer for improving social, cultural, environmental well-being. It has changed the dynamic of political decision making in the country.

    England is following its lead, with prominent housing campaigner and Big Issue founder Lord John Bird now campaigning to see the law replicated across the border.

    Last year, Future Generations Commissioner Sophie Howe set landlords a challenge – to consider whether we were adopting the spirit of the Act in the ways they went about their business – and the decisions they make.

    In this event we’ll explore whether the Well-being of Future Generations Act has changed the way landlords in Wales make decisions, and what housing providers in England could learn from the ethos behind the legislation (and what a similar Bill in England might mean for them).

    We’ll look at how we can adapt our culture, strategies, and processes to align with the national well-being goals that will create the version of Wales and wider UK society we all want to see.

    In this event we’ll cover:

    • The implementation of the Well-being of Future Generations Act – and its impact on Welsh housing to date
    • The views of young people in Wales and what they want from a robust housing sector
    • How the UK can learn from the Act and adopt its principles
    • Leading from the front – how we can adapt business plans based on the seven well-being goals
    • Setting the standards through our own actions – looking after the well-being of our staff
    • Empowering communities – are we creating communities where people feel well-connected and can fulfil their full potential? Do frontline services need to change
    • Creating a low carbon society – housing’s role and how we get there.

    • HR professionals and people teams
    • Organisational learning and development teams
    • People responsible for strategy and policy
