Futures Consciousness Scale
Young Voices

"Futures consciousness is the human capacity to understand, anticipate, prepare for, and embrace the future."

The Teach the Future community is dedicated to bringing futures thinking to schools, educators, and students around the world. By teaching the future you can equip young people to face uncertainty and help them envision and create their preferred future. At Teach the Future, we believe that we need to prepare students for tomorrow by teaching them about the future, today! 

When integrating futures thinking in the classroom, it can be important to assess and measure how students' futures consciousness evolves and changes over time as a result of their learning experiences. 

Teach the Future, in partnership with researchers at the Finland Futures Research Centre (University of Turku) and University of Geneva, have developed a youth version for teenagers aged 12-18 in English, Italian, Dutch and Turkish, of the Futures consciousness Scale for adults. 

The youth scale is freely available for schools and teachers.


The youth scale can be, for instance, used in combination with the lessons of the TED-Ed Future Forward program, or other futures thinking classes available via our library 

If you would like to learn more about it, or use it in your classroom, please leave  your details below and we will reach out to you.
