Quick tips

Most of Academi Wales' Quick Tips come from the Welsh Government’s Sustainable Development Change Programme.

The aim of the programme is to help civil servants across Wales to change their behaviour and culture in line with the Well-being of Future Generations Act.

The Act requires everyone who works (as a member of staff, contractor or grant recipient) in over 100 organisations in Wales to work in new ways. Quick Tips are easy-to-use guides designed to support these new ways of working.

The Welsh Government has been exploring the Act through its Sustainable Development Change Programme. We’d like to share what we’ve been learning with businesses, the voluntary sector, community groups and anyone in Wales who is working on making things better.

Everyone in Wales is invited to join us on this journey.

Maybe you are already using circles, coproduction or pauses in your daily life or work?  If so, we hope that you will still find something interesting among the Quick Tips.

Please take a few minutes to share your views on our Quick Tips. This survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete. Quick Tips - Usage Poll
