The 2030 vision provides one cohesive North Star for the voluntary sector and others to orient towards. It can drive ideas and action for the voluntary sector and its partners: participatory workshops helped articulate how to work together to make the vision become reality.
Other key project outputs and impacts:
• Highly compelling, visualised research insight and outcomes are being disseminated and used across Wales via a public report in English and Welsh.
• ‘Seeds of Change’ (snapshots of the preferred future based on what’s happening today) act as a catalogue of open source ideas for practical system change which can be utilised as discussion tools and conversation starters.
• Participants from 80+ organisations contributed throughout the project. Connections and networks formed through project research and participation are being developed into partnerships that can take components of the vision forward through action
• Highly innovative, participatory foresight tools and methods were designed and iterated by Futurice during the process, enhancing this new field as well as the work of futurice and WCVA
WCVA will use this report to inform and educate politicians and officials at all levels within the Senedd Cymru and Welsh Government, and has already been shared with the Future Generations Commissioner, Ministers and many other partners.
Other beneficiaries who will receive the public report and project outcomes include:
• The entire voluntary sector in Wales (membership of WCVA and Third Sector Support Wales)
• Local Authorities, Health Boards and Public Service Boards in Wales
• Regional Partnership Boards
• UK Government
• UN Global Guardians for Future Generations group
