Since Teach the Future England was launched in October 2019 and Scotland’s group in July 2020, Wales have established our own group. Our parent organisations are UKSCN Wales, which many of our members are part of, and SOS-UK.
Our group is currently made up of eight Welsh volunteers who, while working alongside English and Scottish staff and volunteers, have created our 4 main asks of the Welsh Government;
To date, we have had successful meetings with Plaid Cymru MS Llŷr Gruffydd, Labour MS's Jenny Rathbone and Mick Antoniw, Conservative MS Janet Finch-Saunders and Propel MS Neil McEvoy. We have discussed our asks and how we can support each other.
We have also had an exciting meeting with Tom Davies. Tom has piloted a climate education framework in some Welsh primary schools; we hope that his work’s success will show how necessary climate education is in all Welsh schools.
Ahead of the 2021 Senedd elections, our plan is to contact and work alongside as many local councillors and assembly members as possible to have our asks included in party manifestos and, therefore, at the forefront of the party agendas and campaigns for the parliamentary term ahead. We hope to learn from England and Scotland’s success in the last year to create a successful Welsh group!
