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.

TEACHER WORKSHOPS

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. Our bespoke futures thinking workshops will introduce teachers to the principles of futures thinking and equip them with the tools and materials they need to inspire and empower their learners.
