A new alliance to build long-termism into UK democracy
FDSD is proud to be a key founding organisation behind the new Alliance for Future Generations (AFG). The Alliance’s members are organisations and individuals working to ensure that long-termism and the needs of future generations are brought into the heart of UK democracy and policy processes, in order to safeguard the earth and secure intergenerational justice. Supporting the Alliance and contributing to its projects currently forms a significant portion of FDSD’s work on future generations.
“There is a great deal of work that needs to be done to achieve wider cultural transformation – so that as citizens, we place higher value on future generations and collective well-being.”
From the founding document of the Alliance
The Alliance was launched in March 2011 and will, we hope, become a leading voice for those calling for reforms to our democratic system and policies that will ensure we hand on a better future to our descendants and to young people living now.
Keep an eye out for updates — we’ll post them here as the Alliance takes shape…
