New on our website and blog: Dafydd Thomas

The most recent “In my experience” article by Dafydd Thomas (previously CEO of Wellbeing Wales, now director of The Wellbeing Planner): Wellbeing in context – what makes a difference? where he reflects on a wellbeing project he recently undertook in Namibia. ‘Using any measure of wellbeing, it was clear that the individuals within the older conservancy were thriving in comparison with the other villages. The people had support networks, opportunities, services and a say in local decisions. They also shared the responsibility, the successes and the challenges facing their community with the government officials and other development agencies.  These individuals were ‘doing with’ rather than ‘being done to,’ and as such it was an inspiring experience.’
