GENERATIONSWe in the World Future Council work for
responsible, sustainable thinking and action in
the interests of future generations. We have
come together as a council because, despite
our very different backgrounds, we are bound
together by our common values:
responsibility, compassion, respect, trust and
our caring for the environment.
We come from every continent, from politics,
civil society, business, science and culture.
We inform decision-makers worldwide about
existing policy solutions to the challenges of
our time. We help develop and promote such
solutions in the areas of:
Climate, Energy and Regenerative Cities
Sustainable Ecosystems
Just Societies
Sustainable Business and a Sustainable
Financial System
Peace and Disarmament

Twitter: @good_policiesDear friends,
a few years ago, many countries did not know which policies
are actually most effective in promoting renewable energy
production. The World Future Council therefore organized
workshops with policy-makers from more than 40 countries,
developed an online platform and published a handbook on
so called Feed-in Tariffs. Several countries, amongst them
Great Britain, several US-States and South Africa, have now
implemented these laws and directly refer to the work of the
World Future Council.
It is not always easy to gain support for work on spreading
‘best policies’ and counselling policy-makers. It is remarkable,
however, how much difference such work actually makes, by
creating, accelerating and multiplying incentives for positive
action. As Martin Luther King said, laws may not move the
heart, but they restrain the heartless.
We would like to thank everybody whose support makes
our work possible.
Jakob von Uexkull, Chair, Management Board
Alexandra Wandel, Executive Member, Management Board
Governments must show political leadership in developing
and enforcing visionary laws. The World Future Council brings
the interests of future generations to the centre of policy
making. At the same time, it provides decision-makers with
effective policy solutions. I strongly support this concept and
am delighted to be part of the Council.
Ahmed Djoghlaf, UN Assistant Secretary General and
Executive Secretary, Convention on Biological Diversity
You are right on track.

forest policies which contribute to What exactly is a “Best Policy”? How do you judge a “Best Policy”?
For us, a policy is good if it has a holistic and long-term outlook that protects
the rights of future generations. In that sense, it can also be called a “Future Just
Policy”. The World Future Council has developed a method to identify and
evaluate future just policies. The method is based on the International Law
Association’s seven principles of sustainable legislation. These principles include
natural resource protection, poverty elimination and government transparency.
What is an example of a Best Policy?
We describe some examples on our website We have
created a toolkit to help policy-makers adapt such laws for their country
without losing the key characteristics of the successful models. One of our
biggest successes has been the implementation of “Feed-in Tariff” laws: these
promote the development of renewable energies to combat climate change and
obtain long-term energy security. In addition, they provide a secure income and
allow citizens and small businesses to participate.World Future Council:
