Title: Beyond Institutional Denial: A Global Constitutional Convention for Future Generations

Abstract: Humanity is in deep institutional denial. Current institutions are failing future generations, in part because there is a governance gap when it comes to promoting intergenerational concern. This gap facilitates a tyranny of the contemporary that puts the young and other future generations at risk. Climate change is a prime example. To confront intergenerational tyranny, humanity needs more than merely a Summit for the Future. It needs a global constitutional convention focused on future generations.
