Wij zijn

Teach the Future is een stichting zonder winstoogmerk en is erop gericht om toekomstdenken naar scholen en studenten wereldwijd te brengen. Sinds de oprichting in 2013 is Teach the Future uitgegroeid tot een community van leraren en ambassadeurs wereldwijd met een gezamenlijke missie om leraren en jongeren te activeren.
