Topic: How can ecological intergenerational justice be grounded more firmly in the constitution?

The basis of this question was the unsolved problem of representing future generations in German democracy. The constitution only defines the rights of those already born, which basically means the generations alive today. The protection of the constitution has no effect on the future. The FRFG does not find it ethically acceptable that generations alive today use up the economic and ecological resources of the country, especially where this means there is nothing left for future generations. This is why it is necessary to safeguard the rights of forthcoming generations by embedding these rights in the constitution.
