In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations, even if it requires having skin as thick as the bark of a pine.
— Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy

In 1987 the United Nations defined sustainable development as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” And yet, when choosing between the next generation and the next elections, politicians have usually chosen the latter. This space is reserved for addressing the issue of intergenerational justice.

En 1987, las Naciones Unidas definieron al desarrollo sostenible como "aquél desarrollo que es capaz de satisfacer las necesidades actuales sin comprometer los recursos y posibilidades de las futuras generaciones". Sin embargo, entre las próximas generaciones y las próximas elecciones, los políticos normalmente eligen a la segunda. Este espacio esta reservado para tratar con el tema de la justicia intergeneracional.
