Following its second General Annual Meeting, the World Future Council appealed to governments worldwide to immediately enact legislation preventing climate change and other threats to coming generations.
Hamburg, May 23, 2008. After four days of deliberations about future projects and new expert commissions, the World Future Council (WFC) called for an international change in perspectives regarding the conduct toward coming generations in politics, economics and the sciences. The WFC, consisting of 50 internationally renowned experts, describes the recent global food crisis as a wake-up call. The council members consider it a given that future generations will not be able to feed themselves if the plundering of global natural resources continues at the current speed. The Council also addressed this appeal to participants at the UN Conference on Bio-Diversity which convenes in Bonn, Germany, from May 19 until May 30, 2008.
Hamburg, May 22, 2008: The World Future Council (WFC) has been gathering in Hamburg for its second annual meeting. Its main purpose was to identify the steps that are needed to assure viable living conditions for future generations. We can’t continue to live today as though there was no tomorrow.
