‘The best way to predict the future is to create it yourself.’
We know that hope for the future is a primary predictor of success, but schools offer few practical tools to help students make sense of change or to explore their role in shaping the future. Want to help youngsters become the creator of their own future? Join us and prepare students for tomorrow by teaching the future today.
Teaching the future is crucial to tackle global challenges, such as a changing workplace, emerging climate changes and upcoming technologies. Investing in futures education will help teachers to prepare their students for changes and deal with uncertainties. Teaching the future means helping youngsters acquire 21st skills, such as creative thinking and collaboration in order to tackle complex problems.
