Sign the 'Right to the Future' e-petition to support Ombudspersons for Future Generations!
The World Future Council, together with Terres des Hommes and Oikos
have just launched a global e-petition for Rio to support
Ombudspersons for Future Generations.

The petition entitled ?Right to the Future? acknowledges the deficit
in our governance structures and the huge gap in bringing
sustainability concerns into the heart of our decision making process.
It asks Heads of State to establish this institution at the national,
regional and international level. The petition will be open for
signatures until early June, at which point it will be sent to Heads
of State who will be preparing their arrival in Rio.

The petition available in English, Portuguese, German, French and
Spanish has its own website, with background information and details.
Together with the WFC, Terre des Hommes, Oikos, and all the
signatories, demand a planet defender now! Sign the e-petition
yourself and help us spread the word !
