Join the global

for future generations!

“It’s time to redefine the Future.

The Network convenes those who believe that a better tomorrow can be attained for the benefit of people and planet. Currently we are faced with scenarios that challenge aspirations for a safe and sustainable future. We believe that together we have a duty to current, and future generations to raise the level of ambition. The Network seeks to focus minds on recasting the way we govern, engage and inspire as well as create pathways for attaining a fairer, healthier, more intergenerationally equitable future.

Seeing the world through the eyes of future generations can change the way we relate to others, we organise ourselves, make decisions and act. Embedding these perspectives into governance frameworks brings us closer to a more secure and safe future for all.”

What needs to be done 

Addressing the many challenges and crises that are endangering the well-being of present and future generations demands engaging with governments, institutions, and civil society in a meaningful and collaborative way. There is a need for change in our current policymaking system and political priorities. 

We have an incredible opportunity to transform how we deal with the long-term. We need to more meaningfully consider the future by transforming governance processes to incorporate intergenerational justice. NiFG is a platform for advancing the agenda for future generations. As an independent network of national institutions, organisations and leaders we seek better international governance, multi-lateral collaboration and joint-up decision-making to assure the rights, interests and wellbeing of future generations. We work closely with UN and other intergovernmental and regional agencies to provide experience and orientation in the quest to embed long-term frames in policy-making.

  • long-term governance
  • future-just policymaking
  • collaboration and cooperation
