Future Generations

Future Generations promotes community-led development in partnership with government as a proven, alternative path to improving people's lives and places. Their mission is to: teach and enable a process of equitable community change that integrates environmental conservation with development The core of Future Generations work is a process that communities and governments can use to shape their futures. This community-driven process can create large nature preserves (as in Tibet, China), rapid forms of social change (as in India), extend health services through maternal and child health programs (as in Peru), or help countries rebound from conflict (as in Afghanistan). As an action-oriented civil society organization that partners with an affiliated and accredited graduate school (future.edu), the organization’s three-pronged operational strategy is to: - Incubate effective demonstrations of community change through partnerships in target countries (Afghanistan, China, India, Peru, Haiti, and the United States) - Conduct applied research to develop and evaluate community-based approaches - Build local capacity worldwide through a Master’s Degree in Applied Community Change with concentrations in Conservation and Peacebuilding Mission Future Generations teaches and enables a process for equitable community change that integrates environmental conservation with development. Vision Future Generations was established in 1992 with the belief that community-based change was a proven alternative path to international development. Future Generations ten-year vision seeks a global shift in practice that promotes more effective partnerships between communities, governments, and organizations to achieve community change and conservation. The organization will promote “100 nodes of change” or demonstrations that are evolving more effective practices that fit local ecology, culture, and economy. It is anticipated that Master’s degree alumni, partner organizations, and other practitioners will contribute to this learning process and help mobilize local successes into large-scale social transformation in their own countries. Core Values Future Generations:  - Promotes respect for all lives and the conditions for their harmonious co-existence. - Recognizes the dignity of every human being. - Gives priority to the interests of women who have a particularly strong interest in the wellbeing of their families, children, and community. - Emphasizes equity, empowerment, and self-confidence especially among marginalized members of the community.
