2. Legislative Prize for Generationally Just Laws
02_03_16Proposals for 2nd Legislative Prize for Generationally Just Laws required

The FRFG awarded the Legislative Prize for Generationally Just Laws for the first time in 2013. The first winner was the nuclear power phase-out law passed by the 17th Bundestag. At the end of the 18th legislative period in Germany 2017, the FRFG will award the unremunerated prize for a law or legislative initiative again, which either removes a present injustice that affects future generations or protects future generations from future injustices. The law should be mainly based on the principle of intergenerational justice. The acting recipients of the legislative prize could be politicians who are either members of a government (national governments, EU-Commission), members of a parliament (Members of the European Parliament or UK MPs), or incumbents of a political office (secretary general, board member, leader of  youth organization etc.).
The FRFG is looking for nominees for this prize. Everyone who is interested can send us his/her suggestions by E-Mail ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ), if possible with a short explanation.
On the basis of your ideas the selection process is done in cooperation with a jury which will first select the five possible winners. In a second step the jury will finally choose the most generationally just law to win the price. At an award ceremony the parties and politicians concerned will be awarded with the Legislative Prize.
The FRFG wants to thank the Stiftung Apfelbaum, which will pay the costs that arise.
