THE WORLD FUTURE COUNCIL

The World Future Council (WFC) works to pass on a healthy and sustainable planet with just and peaceful societies to our children and grandchildren. To achieve this, we focus on identifying, developing, highlighting and spreading effective, future-just policies for current challenges humanity is facing and promote their implementation worldwide.

COUNCILLORS

The Council consists of 50 eminent global change-makers from governments, parliaments, civil societies, academia, the arts and the business world. They identify urgent themes and determine the agenda for our work.

WORKING AREAS

The challenges of our time are very complex, so we use a holistic approach to our thinking and work. Currently we are focused on the following working areas: The Rights of Children and Youth, Climate and Energy, Sustainable Ecosystems and Livelihoods, Peace and Disarmament. Our annual Future Policy Award, the ‘Oscar on best policies’, celebrates policies that create better living conditions for current and future generations.
