Stakeholder Consultation on the Declaration on Future Generations

The UN General Assembly (UNGA) will host a Stakeholder Consultation on the Declaration on Future Generations as part of the preparatory process for the Summit of the Future. The Declaration is expected to be one of the outcomes of the Summit of the Future.

The Co-facilitators, Yoka Brandy, Permanent Representative of the Netherlands to the UN, and Brian Wallace, Permanent Representative of Jamaica to the UN, are leading the intergovernmental process for a Declaration on Future Generations. The virtual informal consultations with stakeholders aim to give participants the opportunity to share good practices and suggestions on how to safeguard the interests of future generations. Separate consultations will take place with youth and Indigenous groups; UN agencies, funds, and programmes; civil society organizations (CSOs), research institutions, and academia; and the private sector.

Consultations will address the following questions:

  • What are the principles that should ground our commitments in the Declaration on Future Generations?
  • What practical steps are needed at the global level to take future generations systematically into account?
  • What should the Summit of the Future aim to achieve so that we live up to our obligations to future generations?
