Get involved

The sheer extent of change needed to tackle climate change can’t be achieved without opening up the discussion.

The Well-being of Future Generations Act is unique to Wales and places a legal obligation on public bodies to involve people of all ages and diversity in decision-making.  

This is why the Welsh Government is committed to providing everyone in Wales with ample opportunity to have their voices heard on solutions for tackling climate change; to be agents (and not objects) of change; and to feel that Government climate policies are fair, justified and likely to be effective.  The voices of those most likely to be impacted by climate change are particularly important – from young people, to ethnic minority groups, the vulnerable and older people amongst others.
