Land Phil is a philosopher of the land and his aim is to show the great things that we can achieve by treating our environment wisely and responsibly. He is an old miner and although he would never like to return to the hardships of working underground and the toll it took on miners, he will always stand as testament to those hard-working men and boys and the communities they served.
Land Phil saw how the people of the mining communities organised themselves and helped one another and his mission is to show that the fiery essence of these people remains in the valley communities today, waiting to be reignited. The lamp on Land Phil’s helmet is no ordinary lamp - it will project his thoughts and memories, hopes and aspirations and shine a light on Wales’ past, present and future.
Our values and principles
The Land Phil Global Trust will make a significant contribution to the development of the Welsh economy at a grass-roots level by building a ‘commonwealth’. By this we mean that we will deliver sustainable development in a way that creates greater equality. We will achieve this by increasing resource availability to all levels of society i.e. funding, finance, knowledge, democracy, access to goods and services, jobs, skills, apprenticeships, energy, food, training and supply chains.
The Land Phil Global Trust will work to the values of the Welsh Government’s Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015:
- A prosperous Wales - innovative, productive, low carbon, supporting action on climate change, improving skills and education, generating wealth and employment, creating jobs
- A resilient Wales - enhancing the diverse natural environment with health functioning ecosystems that support social, economic and ecological resilience and the capacity to adapt to change (for example climate change)
- A healthier Wales - helping to create a society in which people’s physical and mental well-being is maximised and in which choices and behaviours that benefit future health are understood
- A more equal Wales - helping to develop a society that enables people to fulfil their potential no matter what their background or circumstances (including their socio economic background and circumstances)
- A Wales of cohesive communities - Attractive, viable, safe and well-connected communities
- A Wales of vibrant culture and thriving Welsh language - a society that promotes and protects culture, heritage and Welsh language, and which encourages people to participate in the arts, sport and recreation
- A globally responsible Wales - a nation which, when doing anything to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales, takes account of whether doing such a thing makes a positive contribution to global well-being
We work to a Sustainable Development Principles which means we act in a manner which seeks to ensure that the needs of the present are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
