Our Topics

Strengthening institutional child protection systems

The One-Stop Centre

The Future Policy Award 2015 was dedicated to policies that contribute to protecting and strengthening the rights of girls and boys based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We focussed on child protection, education, meaningful participation as well as on the right to a healthy environment.

Strengthening children’s health

Protection from hazardous chemicals

Chemicals have become an integral part of our everyday lives. Currently, there are over 40,000 industrial chemicals in commerce worldwide and more than hundreds of new chemicals enter the market every year. The lack of sound management of hazardous chemicals contributes to toxifying the planet and all life on it. Children can be particularly affected, and babies can be born with harmful chemicals in their bodies.  

In 2021 and 2023 the World Future Council dedicated its Future Policy Award to this very important topic.
