A UK-Wide Future Generations Act
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.
