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. At our annual conference, held in March on the theme, “Health, Wellbeing and Active Lives”, we looked at the challenges and opportunities for the infrastructure sector with colleagues from both the public and private sectors.
We were joined by a number of speakers from across the public and private sectors 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 are being captured in a short report, “Active and Healthy Lives : the role of infrastructure”, which will be used to lead further discussions with politicians, policy and decision makers across Wales to initiate the changes that are needed.
The report from this year’s conference is being prepared at present and will be launched at this event in November.
The event is being sponsored by Jenny Rathbone AM and the Deputy Minister for Economy and Transport, Lee Waters, has been invited to help us to launch the report at the Pierhead at lunchtime on Tuesday 26th November 2019.
Further information will be made available to CECA Wales members and guests closer to the event.
