1. YOUTH FOR THE SUSTAINABILITY COUNCIL

The German Sustainability Council consists of 15 renowned experts who give advice to the German government on issues of sustainability and further the public discourse about sustainability in general. After the election of a new German government in September 2009, new experts were appointed to the council. Hans-Peter Repnik, former Parliamentary State Secretary in the Ministry for Development, is the new chairman of the council. The advisory council is meant to represents all relevant groups of the society. Yet, the group with the highest stake in accountability is missing: the young generation. The youngest member of the council is 45 years old. Is the young generation barred from taking part in decisions regarding the future?  The FRFG demands that a representative of the young generation be nominated for the council. The press release concerning the topic can be found on the German website www.generationengerechtigkeit.de. **************************************************************************
2. WOLFGANG GRÜNDINGER NEW SPOKESMAN OF FRFG

Wolfgang Gründinger has been active on the board of directors of the Foundation for several years. He is now also taking office as spokesman of FRFG.

4. FORMER MINISTRE OF FINANCE STEINBRUECK REGRETS SUPPORTING GERMAN PENSIONS GUARANTEE: "MY BIGGEST MISTAKE "

The former German federal government introduced the Pensions guarantee which ensures that pensions will not be cut even if wages are falling. This measure has been criticised sharply by FRFG and many politicians and social scientists: When the economic situation is dire, all generations should share the burden. Peer Steinbrueck, then Ministre of Finance, has now admitted that supporting the Pensions Guarantee was wrong: “It was one of my worst mistakes. I should not have participated in this. It was a break of a taboo. Politicians have done something that I supported although grievingly with regard to intergenerational justice. But eventually I did vote in favour of the measure. Consequently, the system of dynamic pensions which had been established in 1957, I think, and which provided for the adjustment of pensions to the development of wages, was cancelled in favour of a Pensions Guarantee. From the point of view of intergenerational justice I now think that this was a wrong decision.“FRFG will go on campaigning for the abolition of the Pensions Guarantee and for a return to solidary cost splitting between generations in financing the pensions system.

***************************************************************************
5. 5. INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF THE YOUTH

On 18 December 2009, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution A/RES/64/134 which proclaimed an International Year of Youth commencing on 12 August 2010. Its overarching theme is “Dialogue and Mutual Understanding”. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon has demanded that "Youth should be given a chance to take an active part in the decision-making of local, national and global levels." The current Year of Youth takes place 25 years after the first International Youth Year had been proclaimed in 1985. The major theme then was “Participation, Development and Peace”.The official homepage of the Year of the Youth is http://social.un.org/youthyear/   ***************************************************************************
6. "HOW ARE WE TODAY?" – THE YOUTH MAGAZINE NEON TAKES STOCK IN GENERATIONAL RELATIONS

Every generation claims to face harder life conditions than their ancestor.  Is it true that the young generation today is worse off than their parents? The youth magazine NEON had a shot at generational accounting in their current issue (7/2010) and has collected some interesting facts for that purpose. For example, three times as many young people are unemployed today than in 1980; significantly more people are worried about their economic prospects and the average income per household has even dropped since 1980 if one takes inflation into account. The editors of NEON thus conclude that the parents’ wish their children might once lead a better life has not been fulfilled, at least at first glance: “Permanent job contracts? No, but unpaid internships instead. Secure pensions? No, but ad hoc calls for private precaution.” But the comparison delivers more differentiated results as well: the percentage of people with a university degree has risen; there are more dish washers available in private households and due to a rise in productivity incomes allow to consume more products. Nevertheless, precarious developments on the labour market and the cut of social benefits does hit the young generation. According to NEON they feel like being at the mercy of the market: "The generation of our parents believed that they could change the world. We live with the feeling that we must adapt to it."

**************************************************************************
7. The Austerity Package of the Federal Government: In the Name of Intergenerational Justice?


The current plans for austerity of the federal government have triggered a considerable echo. While social interest groups criticise the measures as socially unbalanced, ecological NGOs point out the lack of cuts in subsidies that harm the environment and the Council for Accountability criticises the plans in general, there are some voice which defend the Austerity Package as a contribution to the reduction of public debt.
 
The online-magazine "The European" documents various points of view taken in that debate. In his blog, Wolfgang Gründinger, spokesperson of FRFG, reacts to the Philipp Misfelder, leader of the youth organisation of the Christian Democratic party. Misfelder defended the Austerity Package as well-balanced and as contributing to intergenerational justice. The debate can be accessed at "The European" (http://www.theeuropean.de/debatte/3421-geiz-ist-geil)

1)    FRFG CONFERENCE ON THE INTRODUCTION OF THE EU2020 STRATEGY

On June 24, 2010, the conference "The EU 2020 Strategy - Does it set up Europe for the 21st Century?" was held in Berlin. EU 2020 is the successor to the Lisbon Agenda. The conference was organized by the European Commission in Germany and the FRFG in order to increase the profile of the strategy. In three panel discussions, "Sustainable Growth", "Smart Growth" and "Integrative Growth", experts and officials of the EU-commission and of the German government discussed important aspects of the strategy. The FRFG was represented by Professor Rolf Kreibich, chairman of the Board of Trustees, and Patrick Wegener, research assistant at the FRFG. Around 200 people participated in the full-day conference. The various experts' opinions and the focus on the civilian society of the FRFG complemented one another profitably. For further information, please consult http://www.intergenerationaljustice.org.> Symposia> Symposia 2010

**********************************************************************

2) FRFG CONFERENCE ON “WAYS TO LEGALLY IMPLEMENT INTERGENERATIONAL JUSTICE”

On the 27th and 28th of May 2010, the FRFG organised a conference on the legal enforcement of intergenerational justice at the Foundation Calouste Gulbenkian in Lisbon, Portugal. During the event, international law, politics and philosophy experts discussed the means by which the the rights of future generations could be implemented at the national, European and international level. A novel approach was suggested by Emilie Gaillard Sebileau from the University of Orleans who presented a way to enshrine the rights of future generations in national French law. Lucy Stone, from UNICEF UK, explained how children’s rights might help support the recognition of the rights of future generations. Maja Göpel,  who launched the Department of Future Justice of the World Future Council (Brussels) in 2008, presented a way to use the Lisbon Treaty in order to enshrine the rights of future generations, and Sebastien Jodoin, from the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law, Canada proposed a draft on international criminal provisions to safeguard the rights of future generations based on existing principles. The Ombudsman for Future Generations of  the Hungarian Parliament, Sándor Fülöp, and the former Commissioner for Future Generationsfor the Israeli parliament (Knesset), Shlomo Shoham, gave valuable insights into the practical work of these two institutions.

The presentations will be published soon in our next issue of the IGJR and in the website of the Foundation (www.intergenerationaljustice.org ).

***************************************************************************

3) NEW RESEARCH ASSISTANT AT FRFG

In July 2010 Anne Mazuga will join FRFG’s team as a research assistant. Previously she was a PhD student at Max-Weber College at the University of Erfurt. Her doctoral thesis in philosophy concerned action theory. Before her dissertation Anne Mazuga studied cultural education, Germanic and philosophy at the Universities of Hildesheim, Greifswald and Paris IV. In Erfurt, Anne is a mentor to an interdisciplinary undergraduate seminar on ecological, economic and social sustainability. This seminar is notable for its practical orientation. Students not only learn about sustainability but they also realize projects in the fields of environmental protection, urban development and social work. Anne is particularly interested in new forms of teaching and learning, e.g. service learning, self-organized and informal learning. These innovative methods might help to raise awareness of justice and sustainability at all levels of the educational system and in all phases of life.

***************************************************************************

4) ANNOUNCEMENT: INTERGENERATIONAL JUSTICE AWARD OF THE FRFG

The fifth “Intergenerational Justice Award” accompanied by a prize of € 10,000 is dedicated to the topic "Possibilities and limits of cooperative problem solutions in party democracies." The prize is funded by the Foundation Apfelbaum that inspired him. The deadline for submissions has been extended until the 9th of September 2010!
A breakdown of the topic follows below.

Possibilities and limits of cooperative problem solutions in party democracies

The decision making procedures are of a high complexity in the political system of Germany. Even coalition partners of a multi-party government are representing different points of view according to their own political interests when elections are approaching. When the majorities in the Parliament and the Federal Assembly differ, the opposition becomes a veto player. The intertwining of federal and regional competences makes a politically-motivated party blockade possible. Often parties use the media, associations and unions to mobilise resistance against planned decisions. Financial cuts and long-term decisions especially fall victim to party competition. In the short term it does not appear rational to support unpopular decisions but to sharpen the party’s profile by representing the particular interests of voters. These mechanisms sometimes impede cooperation on longer term objectives. The lack of costly reforms in the education sector, as well as  reneging on climate protection aims, in order to further backward industries illustrate that long-term measures are frequently blocked by single parties. Especially future and succeeding generations are thus discriminated through a lack of topic-oriented party cooperation. How can such cooperation of the parties be furthered, and how can  obstacles to it be overcome?
This year’s award is focused on the German political system, thus papers are available in German only. Please refer to our German website for further information.

The complete tender documents can be at any time request from kontakt(at)srzg.de .

***************************************************************************

5) COLLOQUIUM ON LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS FUTURE GENERATIONS – UNIVERSITIES OF VERSAILLES AND POITIERS, DECEMBER, 2010

Universities of Versailles and Poitiers are organising a colloquium on legal responsibility towards future generations on December 10th and 13th, 2010. There are a number of obstacles to implementing legal responsibility. At present, there are no existing effective constitutional or legal mechanisms to hold present generations liable before a court of law for damage caused to future generations. After the FRFG’s Conference "Ways to Legally Implement Intergenerational Justice", this will be the second big congress to promote the debate on the legal protection of future generations.

6) WORKING PAPER OF MAX PLANCK INSTITUTE ON A LOOMING GERONTOCRACY

The political discourse on demographic change has gained momentum in many developed countries. Political decision makers now seem to be concerned about the consequences of demographic change on societal dynamics, especially intergenerational relations. This is particularly evident in Germany, where the latest pension increase provoked a discussion about a possible transformation of the political system into a "gerontocracy", in which the elderly control public resources to their own benefit. In his paper "Age Trajectories of Social Policies Preferences - Support fot Intergenerational Transfers from a Demographic Perspective", Harald Koszewski investigates whether there is evidence for such a scenario. He looks at two main questions. First, what is the effect of age on preferences toward social policies, which organise public transfers between generations (family and pension policies)? Second, to what extent does a possible age effect depend on further demographic  factors, such as parenthood and marriage, which represent the framework of an individual’s life  course? In contrast to most existing studies, this analysis shows clear age effects: older people are less prone to support a variety of transfers to families  than younger respondents. At the same time, the elderly are more prone to support pension policy reforms that put an even greater burden on the younger generation.

************************************************************

1.) ANNUAL PREVIEW 2010


At beginning of 2010 the FRFG has a very busy 2009 to look back upon. From the political campaign to implement intergenerational justice in the German constitution to the final restructuring of the IGJR as a peer-reviewed, scientific journal, the publication of books and surveys as well as the participation at the UNFCCC talks on climate change in Copenhagen the FRFG has been engaged in promoting intergenerational justice across several fronts and has been constantly improving its scientific work.
In 2010, the foundation will follow up on some of these projects and further develop its profile. On 5 March 2010 the second Demography Prize will be awarded in Berlin. Afterwards the year will be spent focusing on projects treating ways to legally implement intergenerational justice, the annual topic of the FRFG. First there will be a conference on the topic in Lisbon on 27 and 28 May 2010. Subsequently, the first 2010 issue of the Intergenerational Justice Review will be published on the topic. At the same time we will renew our efforts to implement intergenerational justice in the German constitution with the deputies of the Bundestag newly elected in 2009. Another conference, financed by the European Commission, will introduce the EU 2020 Strategy in Germany in July 2010. These projects will, as usual, be flanked by the publication of scientific surveys and studies as well as anthologies.
These ambitious plans, however, strain the capacities of the FRFG. Thus the board of the foundation has decided that the frequency of the publication of the IGJR will be lowered to twice a year.


************************************************************


2.) AWARDING OF THE 2nd DEMOGRAPHY-PRIZE IN BERLIN


On 5 March 2010 between 13.30 and 18.00 the 2nd Demography Prize will be awarded at a symposium in Berlin with the title Where to for the youth? Making use of opportunities in shrinking regions. The prize was inspired and is being financed by the Foundation Apfelbaum. The symposium will be organized in cooperation with the state chancellery of Brandenburg and will take place in the Federal Representation of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in Berlin. During the event the awardees will introduce their papers, afterwards there will be a discussion about the opportunities for young people in shrinking regions. Participation in the event is open to anyone interested, and we cordially invite you to come. Due to organizational matters it is necessary to register for the event.

3.) FRFG-CONFERENCE ON THE INTRODUCTION OF THE EU 2020 STRATEGY

This spring the EU will introduce its new EU 2020 Strategy, the successor to the Lisbon Agenda.

In Germany the FRFG was chosen for this honourable task. The conference is fully financed by the European Commission and will take place as a one day seminar with approximately 100 participants in the European House in Berlin on 26 July 2010. Further information will be available in future newsletters and at http://www.intergenerationaljustice.org/ > Symposia > Symposium 2010 The FRFG is aiming to compile the list of speakers together with its supporters.

4.) FRFG-CONFERENCE IN LISBON ON WAYS OF LEGALLY IMPLEMENTING INTERGENERATIONAL JUSTICE

The Foundation for the Rights of Future Generations is organizing an international conference in Lisbon on the topic of intergenerational justice and law.
We have already established some important partnerships with the World Future Council, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Portuguese Society of International Law, the Portuguese Association for the United Nations and Jacques Delors European Information Centre.
Dr. Sändor Fülop, the Hungarian Ombudsman for Future Generations, Dr. Axel Gosseries (University of Louvain, Belgium), Mr. Sebastien Jodoin  (Centre for International Sustainable Development Law/World Future Council, Canada), Dr. Maja Göpel (World Future Council), Mrs. Lucy Stone (UNICEF, UK), Prof. Dr. Marques Guedes (Portuguese Association for the United Nations) and Prof. Dr. Almeida Ribeiro (Portuguese Society of International Law), Prof. Dr. Viriato Soromenho-Marques (Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and University of Lisbon have already confirmed their presence. The Conference will be held in English in the Auditorium 3 at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, with a capacity of 134 persons.

***************************************************************************

5.) NEW PUBLICATION INTERVALS FOR THE IGJR


The Intergenerational Justice Review made a good step towards establishing itself as a renowned scientific journal for intergenerational justice. In 2009, the foundation its English journal quarterly. It focused on relevant topics of intergenerational justice like climate change and the 'internship generation'. Due to the high scientific standard of the articles, translation into German has cost the editorial office a lot of work. We have, as a result, not yet been able to finish the translations of the German versions of the issues 3/2009 (climate change) and 4/2009 (children’s rights). The issue on climate change will be published within the next few weeks, the issue on children’s rights following a couple of weeks later. Due to the high workload the board of the FRFG has taken the decision to publish the journal only twice a year in future. This is the only way in which the high quality of the journal can be ensured in both languages. Abolishing the German issue, an option that was also discussed during the meeting, was not an alternative since the German issue is cherished by our supporters, some of whom prefer a German version. Comments on the decision can be sent to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

6) CALLS FOR PAPERS FOR THE IGJR


The IGJR is still accepting submissions of articles for the following issues: Issue 1/2010 on 'Ways to legally implement intergenerational justice', for the issue 'Scourge of war' as well as for the issue on 'Possibilities and limits of party cooperation in democracies'.
