  • Over 100 delegates attended our fifth National Intelligence Event – Planning together to improve local well-being: What works? on Thursday 2 March 2017 at Cardiff City Stadium.

    Delegates heard from a range of speakers including Christopher Stevens, Head of Planning and Partnership Branch and Claire Germain Head of Local Government Partnerships, Welsh Government. We also heard from Liz Zeidler, Chief Executive from Happy City. Liz shared the learning from Happy City including their tools and approaches for sustainable well-being for all.

    There were a number of breakout sessions with speakers from the Office for National Statistics, Welsh Government, Canal & River Trust, Coventry University, Sustainable Places Research Institute, Cardiff University, Office of the Children’s Commissioner, Office of the Older People’s Commissioner, Social Services Improvement Agency, Office of the Future Generations Commissioner and Cardiff Institute of Society, Health and Wellbeing (CISHeW).

    The day was brought to a close with Sophie Howe, Future Generations Commissioner who shared her reflections on the draft assessments on local well-being and her thoughts and expectations for the coming year. This was followed by a Q&A session with the Commissioner.

    Feedback from the event so far has been very positive. Presentations are available on our website.
