TEACH THE FUTURE
IF WE WANT OUR YOUTH TO BE PREPARED FOR THE FUTURE, FIRST THEY NEED TO LEARN HOW TO THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE
At Teach the Future Spain, we empower, inspire and equip learners and students with skills to navigate uncertainty, apply creative solutions to problems and carve their own futures
WHAT WE OFFER
LEARNER & STUDENT WORKSHOPS
Our programme aimed at learners and young adults gives participants, whether ten or eighteen, an opportunity to explore many different futures in a meaningful and structured way. Participants are encouraged to create a vision or picture of their possible futures, informed by their knowledge and understanding of their current circumstances as well as external factors that may influence their future
We tailor our programme to the needs of our audience and partners. Examples of customised workshops include a series called Ethical Leaders of the Future and a series titled Futures literacy development. Other potential customisations are based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Futures Thinking for Diversity and Inclusion and Navigating Uncertainty and Future Possibilities.
LEARNER & STUDENT ACTIVITIES
To ensure that young people across South Africa are prepared to navigate an uncertain world and have the agency to imagine and create their preferred future, we advocate that futures thinking become embedded in the school curriculum.
Teachers can play a crucial role in this ambition by including futures thinking practices in their interactions with learners.
