The World Future Council (WFC) is an international forum made up of 50 eminent personalities from around the world. They come from governments, parliaments, academia, civil society, the arts and business. Together they form a voice for the rights of future generations.
In November 2009 the World Future Council established the Disarmament Working Group, which unites experts from around the world and brings to bear on the disarmament work the three core strengths of the WFC: 1) integrated thinking; which is 2) future-orientated; and 3) policy-focused.
In recognition of the existential threat that nuclear weapons pose to life on earth as we know it, the World Future Council established the Peace & Disarmament Commission in 2010.
