    If the TTIP goes ahead, as is being discreetly negotiated at present, it will make billions for the US global corporations and ruin our society, economy and environment in the process.

Update on A Living Wales

A Living Wales - a new framework for our environment, our countryside and our sea:

Consultation summary and next steps

We all need to rethink the way we view, protect and manage the Welsh environment.

Many people have become disconnected from their surroundings and underestimate the contribution that a healthy environment plays in their everyday lives. So it is not surprising that the environment doesn't feature strongly in many decisions we make about our future or our personal well being.

With everyone's help, we want to change this. We want to make the health and quality of our natural environment a focus for everyone and a key part of decision making.

We have published the consultation responses, our summaries of responses and our statement of next steps.

Many organisations responded to the Welsh Assembly Government’sLiving Wales consultation.  Over 170 responses were received.

Most of the responses welcomed the plan to move to an ecosystem approach to managing our environment, and offered to help us with this. Also many of the responses welcomed the establishment of a single environmental body to oversee it.  However many responses queried how this would happen in practice.

A summary of consultation responses is available here
