Green Party figurehead Caroline Lucas insists that our Future Generations Pledge is crucial to “building a better world for our children” has backed our campaign.
From the beginning, Lucas has been a big supporter of our bid to ensure that politicians and public bodies consider the future impact of the decisions they make in the present.
She helped Big Issue founder Lord John Bird launch his Future Generations Bill and has promised to co-sponsor it through the House of Commons when it is reintroduced to Parliament when it resumes following the general election.
Lucas was also one of the first politicians to support our Future Generations Pledge – alongside 112 of her Green Party colleagues at current count.

“We have to build a better world for our children, so they have jobs, homes, clean air and a habitable planet,” Lucas told The Big Issue. “That’s why I’m supporting The Big Issue’s Future Generations Pledge, so that their needs are front and centre of all government decision-making. No more short-termism which delivers quick fixes for today but ignores the impacts tomorrow.
