Since 2009, we have been celebrating effective policies that create better living conditions for current and future generations with the Future Policy Award (FPA). Each time the prize is dedicated to a different topic. Here you can find out more about the Future Policy Award process: from finding a topic to awarding the prize.
The FPA process
Who can nominate?
Our Councillors, Advisors and selected international organisations can submit nominations for the Future Policy Award. The WFC Research Department reviews the nominated policies and applies the WFC’s seven policy principles, which are based on the Seven Principles for Sustainable Development presented at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg.
7 principles for future-just lawmaking
The seven principles for future-just lawmaking are applied to all nominated policies. The WFC has developed a methodology for future-just lawmaking that supports legislators in the conception, revision and evaluation of policies. The methodology is based on the seven principles for sustainable development presented by the International Law Association and adopted at the 2002 Earth Summit.

Future justice means making those values essential for survival the basis of every policy and political measure. To support this, we have developed seven principles for future-just lawmaking.
