Securing the Future Starts Now - 18/12
This joint World Future Council and Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) panel explores how we can safeguard the planet for future generations enabling them to live in prosperity and with dignity. What new mechanisms and tools, based upon existing best practice, could more effectively take into account future generations? Intergenerational equity and the rights and needs of future generations have been the subject of debate for many years, growing evidence adds to the critical need for the issue to be addressed in more concrete terms. The report from the UN Secretary-General, Intergenerational Solidarity and the Needs of Future Generations, proposes to introduce a UN High Commissioner for Future Generations, and provides the basis for constructive discussion and the opportunity for further engagement with the issues.
