Youth:Present is the new youth forum of the World Future Council. The forum seeks to connect youth worldwide to discuss and present innovative solutions to our many global problems together, throughout the year. It is open for participation by anyone who is between 8 to 25 years and seeks to be as diverse, representative and inclusive as possible, reflecting voices of young people from different parts of the world.
Changing the world, one policy at a time…
What are best practices and sustainable solutions for our common future? How can we leave the planet in better shape for future generations?
Welcome to the first podcast of the World Future Council. Discover our work and the answers to those questions by listening to intergenerational dialogues between our founders, some of our most senior Councillors and young entrepreneurs and activists from around the globe.
This podcast series provides a behind-the-scenes insight into how a revolutionary idea became reality, from the very beginnings of the World Future Council to its current agenda—providing inspiration, laughter, best practices, and food for thought.
Each episode will see our Councillors get together with young activists and changemakers from around the globe, who are also part of our youth forum Youth:Present. Since 2021 we have produced 2 seasons of The Good Council. In 2023 we look forward to a new season full of new and exciting intergenerational dialogue!
