The Women's Congress for Future Generations answers the urgent call to care for our planet and to be guardians for future generations 

In September 2012, nearly 200 individuals gather in Moab, Utah for the first Women's Congress of Future Generations. The focus was on the rights of future generations to a just a livable future. A Declaration of the Rights Held by Future Generations and the Responsibilities of Present Generations was drafted and ratified. This is a living document, designed and defined to expand and evolve as it is passed down from generation to generation.

Future First was created in January 2014 as the new space for this important work 

Future First takes the work of the Women's Congress forward by putting the principles of the Declaration into action. Please visit our new website to stay connected to upcoming activities! The website will remain as an archive of the 2012 Women's Congress event.    

Future First will host the upcoming 2014 Women's Congress for Future Generations
 November 7-9, 2014 in Minneapolis, Minnesota

This gathering will mobilize a movement of women going forward, fueling actions to shift cultural and political converstions toward a worldview that recognizes the interdependence of all things.   

As we grow and transition, our vision remains the same: to mobilize a groundswell of courageous citizens to act individually and collectively, raising a united voice of caring for Mother Earth. We call for a paradigm shift in policies, laws, alliances and norms to ones that support sustainability, justice and interconnection for a world in which present and future generations can thrive. 

We invite you to be a part of this exciting work!

We have a beautiful
Her green lap
Her Brown embrace
Her blue body
everything we know.
