Long-term thinking resource helps organisations protect the health of future generations

A new resource to help organisations use long-term thinking to reduce health inequalities is being launched by Public Health Wales in partnership with the Office of the Future Generations Commissioner.  It provides tools and case studies which show how we can move on from just treating disease to promoting good health and preventing illness whenever we can. 

Helping organisations to think for the long-term can enhance current projects and processes and improve the quality of the important decisions that drive their work every day. 

The new resource aims to inspire those in Wales and beyond to reduce health inequality by exploring methods to enable long term thinking and sharing case studies which show how those approaches have been applied in Wales. It guides users through identifying relevant trends, generating a future vision, and setting a course for a desired future. Methods discussed include horizon scanning, the futures triangle, axes of uncertainty and scenario planning, among others.
