World Futures Day (WFD) is held every year on March 1st sponsored by The Millennium Project in collaboration with others to spark a global conversation on the future. This was the tenth edition of their 24-hour around the world conversation about our common futures!
Teach the Future (TTF) wants to make sure young people are part of this conversation. As a result, Teach the Future, in collaboration with The Millennium Project and with the support of many partners and friends, launched the Young Voices version of World Futures Day on March 1st, 2021. Teach the Future is a global movement that promotes futures thinking for students and educators. Our aspiration is that every young person is prepared to navigate an uncertain world and has the agency to imagine and create their preferred future.
