That’s what I call a CELEBRITY – it really was Transformational!
Interlink held a hugely successful Conference titled ‘The Power Of Future Generations to Transform Society’ on the 13 November with over 100 people in attendance.
The audience was overwhelmed with the presentations from young people supported by Spectacle Theatre; and by Interlink members, with Anne West – The Monday Club – (Beddau & Tynant Community Library) and Dave Harris from Treorchy Men’s Shed inspiring everyone with the incredible things they try to involve people in what they do. It motivated everyone to take part in workshops on loneliness and isolation, volunteering and children and young people, and Interlink has a huge amount of work to do to work with people to take action. Interlink also explained their plans to work more closely with members to make sure they get the support they need to have an even greater impact in the community.
‘The presentations from our members and young people seemed to motivate everyone in the room, we don’t need celebrity speakers because people working for free in our communities are the real celebrities. They brought such energy with them into the event, that’s what I call a celebrity – it really was transformational!’ Simon, Chief Executive
With special thanks to Marcus Longley, Chair of Cwm Taf Public Service Board and Cwm Taf University Health Board, who talked about how the PSB aimed to implement the Wellbeing Plan, but more importantly took time to listen to people and share thoughts and experiences with us. We were also pleased with the contribution from Jacob Ellis, representing the Future Generations Commissioner, who talked about listening to and involving people and tackling climate change.
