BetterPod: Sophie Howe explains how to make a better tomorrow

BetterPod is joined by Wales’ Future Generations Commissioner, Sophie Howe, to ask what we can do now for a better tomorrow.

On the first episode of BetterPod, we are joined by Wales’ Future Generations Commissioner Sophie Howe.

Sophie Howe is at the forefront of a growing movement to act today for a better tomorrow. The world’s first Future Generations Commissioner, her role came into being in 2016 following Wales’ Well-being of Future Generations Act. She now has the legal responsibility to act as the guardian of those yet unborn. 

She was, therefore, a perfect choice to kick off BetterPod, The Big Issue’s weekly interview podcast that examines how we can all act today for a better tomorrow.

She joined Laura Kelly and Katerina Sivitanides talk about how a joined up approach to planning for the future is making waves in Wales, and how you’re never too small to make a difference.

BetterPod is brought to you by The Big Issue’s Future Generations team. Through the Future Generations team, we offer a platform for exciting young journalists from underrepresented backgrounds to address the biggest issues facing us today.
