Pact for the Future of Humanity | The Daejeon Political Declaration

The Pact for the Future, The Daejeon Declaration is the key outcome document of the 2022 World Congress and defines the Strategic Priorities for the Organization 2022 to 2028. With the Pact, local and regional governments re-state that they are ready to join national and international partners in bringing about meaningful change.

The Pact for the Future for People places people at the center, deepening the needs of current generations and expanding the rights of future ones by guaranteeing access to public services and the commons. As we acknowledge the impact of growing inequalities within and between cities, the Pact seeks to deliver fairness and intersectional justice for everyone and for every place.

The Future for the Planet promotes systems and ways of living in harmony with our planet while building resilience and sustainability through policies that renature our production and consumption models will be crucial cornerstones of the Pact for the Future – and an endeavor that no actor nor level of government can achieve alone.

The Future for Government is founded upon the call of our communities who are increasingly pleading for the transformation of governing systems. We are in a once-in-a-generation opportunity to review and improve our tools to respond to the challenges we face, to ensure we drive a profound transformation of our societies and our systems.
