We are gathering the clans to scope and commit actions to launch ‘Best for Wales’, an ambitious project that links the increasing impact of businesses working for good through the B Corp Movement and Wales’ unique opportunity to become a connected, country-scale sustainability leader.
Our hopes for Best for Wales are informed by city-scale projects already launched by B Corp in the USA, and similar work underway in Scotland. We are starting the process in Wales by bringing together business, community, corporate, public and third sector leaders with the insight, connections and capability to make scaled-up change happen.
THE BEST FOR WALES PROJECT
“How can we shift from ‘doing better’ to ‘doing what’s needed’”
In the first event on Friday 26 May you will hear:
- Katie Hill, Exec Director of B Lab UK
- Gareth Jones, Founder at Welsh ICE and
- Nick Davies, Founder of Neighbourly
sharing stories of how businesses large and small are already shifting the ways they work in ways that could dramatically increase social, economic and environmental outcomes in Wales if taken to scale.
WORKSHOP – BEST FOR WALES
Friday 26 May 2017, 4pm
Our second event starts with an update on the impact of the Welsh Government’s ground-breaking Wellbeing of Future Generations Act from Anne Meikle, Director of WWF Cymru, and sustainability consultant Alan Netherwood, leading into a action-based workshop on the ways that Best for Wales could help deliver our respective organisations’ goals and mission at greater scale and speed.
There’s a small charge for the Best for Wales talk, and the following workshop is free but ticketed. Please book through the links via the Best for Wales.
