Future in our hands

Framtiden i våre hender (Future in our hands) is Norway's largest environmental organization, and works for a fair distribution of the world's resources.

Framtiden i våre hender (Future in our hands) is Norway's largest environmental organization, and works for a fair distribution of the world's resources.

We think that the sustainability of nature and the climate is more important than growing the consumption and economy of rich countries.

We work to make government and business facilitate green and ethical choices.

We are committed to the global environment and a globally fair distribution of wealth. We believe the two are inseparably linked, in a way that requires us to work on both subjects in an integrated way. The organization has about 30.000 members in Norway.

Future in our hands is a non-governmental organization independent from political parties or religious groups. We have a democratic structure, with a bi-annual general assembly and a competent board.

We have 20 local groups in Norway, and 20 employees working at the head office in Oslo and with some of the local groups. We do information and awareness-rasing through advocacy and debates in schools, political assemblys, social media, tv, radio and newspapers. We focus on:

Consumption
Create support for the need for a reduced consumption of natural resources in Norway, to protect the environment and the world's poor Create a longing in the population for a less commercialised society, and a lifestyle with a reduced focus on materialism.

Fair distribution
Create support for global redistribution, where the poor improve their living conditions, and the rich reduce their consumption of natural resources. Work to reverse the flow of capital, which currently runs from the South to the North.

Business ethics
Monitoring ethical standards on Norwegian foreign investments and Norwegian businesses' conduct in developing countries. It has a special focus on human rights impacts end environmental standards. Articles and comments to Norwegian media.

BACKGROUND: The origins of the Future in our hands

    FIOH gave birth to The Development Fund in 1978. The Development Fund is an independent development cooperation organization which believes the fight against poverty must be based on sustainable management of natural resources. It has more than 30 partner organizations in 17 countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

    During the early 1980's FIOH worked worked together with a broad range of NGOs to establish the "Alternative future" - project, to work for "social goals and environmental- and resource responsibility". The work progressed with funding from the government in 1984.

    Today two entities constitute the legacy of this project:
