Wellbeing of Future Generations Bill 2020Wellbeing of Future Generations Bill 2020

This Bill introduced to Parliament in March by Lord Bird and Carolyn Lucas is based on the Welsh Bill of 2015 and what has been learnt from it since it was passed. It is due for its second reading on the 27th November. Please urge your MP to support this important piece of legislation

It will enshine in law the future generations principle that is defined as 

‘seeking to ensure that the needs of the present are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’


What Future For Welsh Railways?What Future For Welsh Railways?

Pembrokeshire Friends of the Earth has recently written to all our assembly members urging them to put pressure on Transport for Wales to reconsider their purchase of new rolling stock. This new rolling stock, which has a life of 30years, is fuelled exclusively by diesel pushing the decarbonisation of public transport way into the future, just as the climate crisis deepens and we need urgent action. It is also of a lower standard of comfort than existing stock.

During her talk at the Hay Festival Digital, Christiana Figueres, former UN Executive Secretary for Climate Change, pointed out that the post covid stimulus package, an estimated 15 trillion dollars, will dwarf all spending for many years to come, making it vital that this money is used to create a massive shift to a circular, low carbon economy not business as usual.

There have been many aspects of lockdown which have been frustrating, difficult and distressing but last week these were mitigated by the pleasure of joining thousands from around the world online at the Hay Festival Digital.  There were the obvious glitches due to the familiar poor internet connections and I was disappointed not to hear Ilhan Omar, (her interview with Jon Snow was cancelled due to the unfolding situation in Minnesota), but there were many delights and congratulations go to the organisers. Those that missed it can catch the talks on Hay Player for a £10 subscription.
