The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 gives a legally-binding common purpose of seven Well-being goals and five ways of working (below) designed to support and deliver a public service that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

5 Ways of Working – Sustainable Development Principles

The Act also puts a Well-being duty on specified public bodies to act jointly and establish statutory Public Services Boards (PSBs) for each local authority area in Wales. Each PSB must improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural Well-being of its area by contributing to the achievement of the Well-being goals.
