Welcome to the blog. This is the first in a series of posts from the Welsh Government on some of the steps we’re taking to improve the well-being of future generations in Wales and how you can be a part of this.
The aim of this blog is to share with you the work we’re doing on developing National Milestones, updating National Indicators and developing a Future Trends Report. These are three important parts of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 that tell us about the progress we’re making towards our well-being goals and any challenges we might face on the way.
If you have read the first of our Shaping Wales’ Future blogs, you will see that the Future Trends Report is one of the three important mechanisms under the Well-being of Future Generations Act which help us understand Wales now and in the future.
We are drafting this report for publication in December 2021 and will be using the Shaping Wales’ Future blog platform to update you on the work as it develops and shine a light on some of the trends and drivers that will feature in the final report.
It is impossible to ignore the changes we have experienced over the last 18 months and the different light the pandemic has shone on what contributes to the wellbeing of Wales. As a result, we’re looking at whether this experience has highlighted any gaps in the way we measure progress towards our well-being goals.
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about National Milestones and how they will assist Ministers in measuring whether progress is being made at a national level towards the achievement of the well-being goals. The goals aim to help set us on a sustainable path for a more equal, prosperous, resilient, healthier and globally responsible Wales, with cohesive communities and a vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language.
