Green Futures

Green Futures is the leading magazine on environmental solutions and sustainable futures. Founded by Jonathon Porritt in 1996, it is published by Forum for the Future.

Every issue is packed full of stories, comment and insight on topics ranging from clean energy and smart design, to food and finance in a changing world.

Our readership includes key decision-makers and opinion-formers in business, government, education and the media, including leading CEOs, all UK MPs and MEPs. Our global reach is growing through online syndication deals with websites in the US such as Grist and, and print publications such as India’s Sustainability Tomorrow and Brazil’s Ideia Sustentavel.

You can read us in print four times a year, and we also produce regular Special Editions. These offer detailed insights into a range of hot topics from Brazil’s search for a sustainable future, to the positive case for carbon offsetting, the potential and pitfalls of geoengineering, to the future of food and farming in a changing climate.

Battle of Ideas 2006 Welcome Address

"The energy, verve and enthusiasm at The Battle of Ideas filled me with hope. Coming from India where so many people still lack the basic necessities that make human life worth living, it was heartening to see basic issues of equity and justice debated with such passion and fervour."
George Thomas, orthopaedic surgeon; editor, Indian Journal of Medical Ethics
