The World Future Council
In recent years, Jakob von Uexkull has concentrated on creating the World Future Council, a body of 50 globally recognised wise elders, pioneers and youth leaders. This Council will give voice to the interests of coming generations and will work for a sustainable future. Several Right Livelihood Award Recipients are involved with the initiative. The head office of the Word Future Council is located in Hamburg, Germany.
The Council will address important issues like the protection of the environment, peace, justice, human development, human rights and health by encouraging the implementation and enforcement of treaties and laws. It aims to add an ethical perspective to the mostly economical and political considerations that decide about the most important questions of our time. When needed, it will commission research and recommend new policies and laws to protect the welfare of the planet and its citizens
