Wales Future Generations Commissioner

In this episode, we look overseas for inspiration about improving the wellbeing of younger and future generations. ⁠We spoke with Derek Walker⁠, the watchdog for Wales' pioneering ⁠Future Generations Act⁠. He talks about his role and goals; his country’s new national healthcare strategy; and the difficult task of balancing the needs of people struggling to pay their bills now with the needs of people not yet born. He also reflects on the achievements of his predecessor, Sophie Howe, who compelled the country to scrap plans for a new highway in favour of greater investment in public and active transportation.
