In its broadest sense, sustainability is also about peace, equality, and fairness which is why the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals include specific actions toward Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions while in Wales the Well-being of the Future Generations Act speaks of being Globally Responsible.
Everyone has different values, and so on this page we will be collating a wide range of actions you can take.
We are starting with crisis in Ukraine but our plan is to create a resource that signposts to a wide variety of causes and campaigns from across the globe.
ReStart Refugee Employment
The Welsh Government’s ReStart campaign is encouraging companies to employ refugees and migrants. They are committed to Wales becoming a Nation of Sanctuary, which welcomes people fleeing persecution to live well, work and thrive in communities throughout Wales.
All refugees welcome
The Living Wage Foundation’s parent charity Citizens UK is a leading player in the community sponsorship scheme, which allows community groups to support the resettlement of vulnerable people fleeing conflict and take the lead in welcoming them to live in their communities.
Women Seeking Sanctuary Advocacy Group Wales are an advocacy and research group which works with and for refugee women and their families to enhance their ability to rebuild their lives.
How to support Ukraine
Leaders and members of various communities have already come together to take actions that demonstrate what this goal means in practice.
The UN Global Compact and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) developed a Business Guide to urgently respond to Ukraine’s humanitarian crisis. The Guide provides concrete action for businesses to support the Secretary-General’s three-month Flash Appeal for people in Ukraine, and a Regional Refugee Response Plan for the situation outside, under the leadership of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
