Rethinking Wales: Welsh Government’s supplementary budget

The IWA’s #RethinkingWales series will explore the challenges we face because of Covid-19, and work out the opportunities for change.

An open, politically independent and inclusive space for discussion and debate is the best way to identify the challenges we face in Wales because of Covid-19, and work out where the opportunities for real change are.

We are well placed to bring those voices together, and the IWA #RethinkingWales series will explore how different sectors need to respond to this crisis and how we need to start thinking differently.

The next session will be taking place on Thursday, 4 June at 11 am. We will be emailing confirmed attendees on the morning of the 4th with details of how to join the Zoom call, please do check your junk inbox.

It will be an hour long panel discussion on Zoom chaired by IWA Director, Auriol Miller and attendees will be able to engage in debate and ask questions on the live chat.

The topic of the discussion is to what extent is Welsh Government’s supplementary budget a well-being budget?

Joining us will be:

Guto Ifan – Research Assistant, Wales Governance Centre

Sophie Howe – Future Generations Commissioner for Wales

Steve Thomas CBE – Retired CEO of the Welsh Local Government Association

 David Evans – Acting High Commissioner, New Zealand High Commission
