POLITICS - YOUTH

The Voice of the future generations

The World Future Council consists of 50 eminent global change-makers from governments, parliaments, civil society, academia, the arts and business. They work to pass on a healthy planet and just societies to the next generations with a focus on identifying and spreading effective, future-just policy solutions. The World Future Council was launched in 2007 by Jakob von Uexkull, Founder of the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’. It operates as an independent foundation under German law and finances its activities from donations.

They try to make politicians aware that they have an ethical responsibility to assess every decision-making process on the basis of how it will affect future generations. In close collaboration with civil society groups, members of parliament, governments, businesses and international organisations they research future just policies and legislation. They then advise political decision-makers, offer them tried and tested courses of action and support them in the concrete implementation of new policies. As an independent non-profit organisation with no interest in short-term profit or prestige, autonomous from governmental and institutional interests, their organisation enjoys a high level of credibility in its political advocacy.
