ⓘ Future generations

Future generation or future generations are the generation or generations of people to come in the future, after the currently living generations of humans. The future generation is contrasted with past generations or generations past.

The term started to be used in reference to the impact which the currently living generation has on the world which future generations will live in, the world they will inherit from humans living today. A moral obligation has been identified for current generations to provide for sustainable living conditions not just for the future of their own children cf. Think of the children but indirectly also to the future of their childrens children.

This concept is referred to in the most widely quoted definition of sustainability as a part of the concept sustainable development, is that of the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations on March 20, 1987:" sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

In Wales, this moral obligation is encoded as a legal duty in the Well-being of Future Generations Wales Act 2015 and in the role of the Future Generations Commissioner. Similarly in Hungary the office of the Hungarian Parliamentary Commissioner for Future Generations was established in 2008.
