Dear Environment and Sustainability Committee,


I support the campaign for a strong Well-being of Future Generations Bill. I would like to see the Bill strengthened by:


• Adding in targets to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases • Including a strong duty on public bodies to aim to achieve sustainable development in everything they do • Adding a clear definition of sustainable development • Properly considering the impact Wales has on people and the environment overseas • Boosting the powers of the Commissioner and making the role accountable to Assembly Members rather than Welsh Ministers


I would personally like to add that there must be much better regulations over Universities to get involved and work towards meeting the carbon reduction targets, perhaps through reducing funding or support in other ways.


Wales is leading the way in so many great environmental initiatives such as the coastal path, plastic bag charge but those issues will only make a small difference and Wales needs to lead the way in ensuring we leave behind a country and planet we are proud of.


Please consider my views as you scrutinise the legislation over the coming weeks.


Yours sincerely


Megan David
