Transforming Wales, Transforming our World
The Open University in Wales and the Sustainable Development Alliance Wales are holding a free, half day seminar to discuss the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, its links with the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act, and what it all means for Wales.
The event will provide the opportunity to hear what the Welsh Government is doing to secure a sustainable future for Wales, to meet the new Future Generations Commissioner and to explore the implications of both the global commitments and national legislation for the work of you own organisation.

The event is aimed at organisations and public bodies working on sustainable development issues, either domestically or internationally, but it open to anyone to attend.

Speakers include
Sophie Howe, Future Generations Commissioner
Andrew Charles, Head of Sustainable Development, Welsh Government
Professor Giles Mohan, Chair of International Development, The Open University
Anne Meikle, Head of WWF Cymru and Chair of the Sustainable Development Alliance Wales
Selina Moyo, Chair of the Sub Sahara Africa Advisory Panel
