The decisions made today, be they economical, political or social, drastically impact the well-being of future generations. Although they undeniably face the consequences of what is decided today, they don’t have a pre-emptive say in it. The World Future Councils aims to change that.

We propose the introduction of a UN High Commissioner for Future Generations, someone in a position of responsibility and access, who promotes the well-being of future generations by recognizing the advantages of future-just policy making and bridging the gap between current and future generations, all the while remaining independent and free from political and business influence.
