Why Support Us
Thinking long term can help to strengthen our society and economy in an uncertain world.
- Action to make the Welsh economy less reliant on fossil fuels means that we will be less vulnerable to oil and gas price rises
- Investment in energy efficiency would mean people spending less on heating and more in the local economy, while creating thousands of jobs
- A boost to green skills training, for example in energy, public transport and waste management could help Wales benefit from the green economy
- Wales’ environment is key to marketing us as a tourist destination as well as for the export of quality Welsh farm produce.
- Public bodies will have to take action to protect and enhance Welsh culture and heritage – from ancient sites to Super Furry Animals
- Planning authorities would have to take protection and promotion of the Welsh language into account when considering housing and other developments
- Sustainable Development means protecting our indigenous culture while celebrating diversity and welcoming people, and their cultures, from around the world.
- A new law should make it more difficult for public bodies to buy products made in dangerous sweatshops and encourage them to buy fair trade
- Big spending decisions, for example road projects, would be examined to ensure they benefit people in poverty as well as the rich
- Public bodies in Wales will have to ensure that their plans and decisions – for example the location of schools and hospitals – work to fight inequality
- Government bodies will have to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions – helping to tackle climate change which is harming the environment and the world’s poorest people
- Protecting Welsh wildlife, like the red kite, will be a priority for all devolved public bodies
- Reducing pollution from transport and industry would mean a healthier environment for children and vulnerable people.
