Gerhard Stübe named ambassador of the World Future Council
The World Future Council has named the executive director of Kongresskultur, Gerhard Stübe, its ambassador. The organisation sees itself as the voice of future generations and is committed to engineering a better future through research and promoting sustainable policies.
The agenda of the World Future Council (WFC), founded eleven years ago, is far-reaching, and encompasses the wider adoption of renewable energy, standing up for children’s rights, and working towards nuclear disarmament and a world without hunger. Some 50 international experts from the world of politics, economics, science and culture search for examples of best policy, propose effective solutions and present them to politicians. Among notable members of the council are Jakob von Uexküll, who instituted the Alternative Nobel Prize, co-president of the Club of Rome, Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, and the actress Daryl Hannah.
“We have acquired a committed representative for our work in the person of Gerhard Stübe,” said WFC director Alexandra Wandel. “We are convinced he will be an enrichment to our foundation, since he has already worked on a number of initiatives in Vorarlberg in the field of sustainability, initiatives that correspond to our aims and values.”
The World Future Forum, the annual meeting of the WFC, was held at Bregenz Festival House in spring 2017 and made a lasting impression on the councillors. “By activating my network we succeeded in bringing the World Future Council to Lake Constance. As ambassador I will continue to forge links between the WFC and committed companies and institutions from the region,” Gerhard Stübe declared.
