Taking the longer view: UK governance options for a finite planet


This report suggests ten governance options for the UK to embed a more future-oriented approach in UK politics, including an Office for Future Generations to an annual Congress of the Future and a new parliamentary chamber.

Peter Roderick highlights some of the UK’s successes – for example, the Climate Change Act – and explores the range of possible approaches and institutions in other countries from constitutions, laws and political institutions (independent or parliamentary).
