The Future of Infrastructure in Wales
27 September 2018, Cardiff
We are aiming to challenge the overarching Welsh government Policies such as Prosperity for all and the Future Generations Act, by hosting a series of events to understand the Future of Infrastructure in Wales.

This first event is designed to be an informal discussion for you to have your say and voice your opinions on what the future may hold for Wales, and whether the current policies may cover these emerging challenges in years to come.

This is an interactive session to capture your ideas and expertise using various platforms with all collated efforts being produced to the NICfW (National Infrastructure Commission for Wales).


Guest speaker: Dr Rosie Hughes
