“HEALTH, WELLBEING AND ACTIVE LIVES”

 Challenges and opportunities for the infrastructure sector

 The Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Wales will be hosting its 2019 Annual Conference in partnership with the Association of Consulting Engineers (ACE) and the County Surveyors Society (CSS) Cymru on 15th March 2019 at the Llyn Vyrnwy Hotel in mid Wales. The theme for this year’s conference will be :

“Health, Wellbeing and Active Lives – challenges and opportunities for the infrastructure”

As we face increasingly difficult funding challenges across the public sector, an ageing population and mounting pressures on the NHS there are increased demands for infrastructure which will encourage and allow us to lead healthier and more active lives.

A number of speakers from across the public and private sectors have been invited to share their thoughts and to stimulate debate amongst delegates on how the infrastructure sector can rise to these challenges. As with previous conferences these sessions will be captured in a short report which will be used to lead further discussions with politicians, policy and decision makers across Wales to initiate the changes that are needed.
