Forum for Our Common Future (formerly UNED Forum)
is a unique multi-stakeholder non-governmental organisation - a network
and forum on sustainable development which has promoted outcomes from the first
Earth Summit in 1992 and is now working on preparations for Earth Summit 2002.
Stakeholder Forum for Our Common Future is an international multi-stakeholder organization, committed to the promotion of global sustainable development.
Based in London, England, Stakeholder Forum's primary objective is to promote sustainable development through facilitating the involvement of major groups and stakeholders in the policy work of the United Nations and other inter-governmental institutions.
Forum is the
National Committee for in the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in the
UK, and Stakeholder Forum activities also support the work of the United Nations Development
Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development
(CSD). However, Stakeholder Forum is not an official body of the United Nations.
Our commitment to global sustainable development is best
expressed in Agenda 21 and the Rio Declaration, both agreed to at the UN
Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), or more commonly known as the
Earth Summit, which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992.
Established in 1993 as an outgrowth of the Sustainable
Development Unit of the United Nations Association of Great Britain and Northern
Ireland (UNA-UK), Stakeholder Forum has grown from a UK organization to an
international multi-stakeholder forum. Directed by and accountable to a
democratically elected Executive Committee of UK stakeholders. Stakeholder
project Towards Earth Summit 2002 is guided by an international advisory
board reflecting the stakeholder groups outlined in Agenda 21.
