Is it time for a UK-Wide Future Generations Act?
(20/09/19)
Posted by : Transform Our World

 

Younger and future generations face a disproportionately challenging future due to older generations’ complacency to act on environmental issues, warns The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) in a new discussion paper.

 

Called ‘Inheriting the Earth? The unprecedented challenge of environmental breakdown for younger generations’, the paper was published on Tuesday and is the second in a series of five being released by IPPR.

 

In it, IPPR urges for formal representation of younger and future generations’ interests in decision-making through a UK-wide Future Generations Act.

 

Older generations’ damaging activity is contributing to the breakdown of Earth’s natural systems –  and young people will not only bear the brunt of consequences, but will also face the challenge of decelerating this breakdown.
