World Futures Day - Young Voices
By Lisa Giuliani & Peter Bishop
World Futures Day is held every year on March 1st to spark a global conversation on the future. We want to make sure young people are also part of the conversation. In the end, it is their future we are talking about. As a result, Teach the Future, in collaboration with the Millennium Project and along other partners and friends, initiated the Young Voices version of World Futures day.
24 hour conversations about the future
March 1st is World Futures Day- Young Voices. The event was hosted on Zoom and streamed Live on YouTube. On March 1st 2022, conversations with young people about the future took place starting at 12:00 Noon in Tokyo all the way around the world ending in Hawaii around 1:00 pm the next day. The conversations included sparkling ideas, interesting perspectives. The many great conversations were optimistic and hopeful and exhibited an awareness of and a desire to create beautiful futures.
