The World Future Council consists of 50 eminent global change-makers from governments, parliaments, civil society, academia, the arts and business. It works to pass on a healthy planet and just societies to our children and grandchildren with a focus on identifying and spreading effective, future-just policy solutions. Jakob von Uexkull, Founder of the “Alternative Nobel Prize”, established the World Future Council in 2007. It operates as an independent foundation under German law and finances its activities from donations.

World Future Council and the Sustainable Development Goals

The World Future Council’s Global Policy Action Plan, GPACT, is a coherent best policy guide that brings together working, innovative policy solutions and forward-thinking practical tools. This policy package contains the minimum policy steps required to enable us to preserve a habitable planet and protect the rights of both present and future generations to a healthy world. Primarily aimed at time-constrained policy-makers, GPACT provides the complementary information manual to facilitate the adaptation and implementation of winning policies which can help in meeting international commitments under the Sustainable Development Goals.

You can find GPACT online.
