World Futures Day 2021
24 hour conversations about the future
March 1st it is World Future Day. Together with partners from around the world we will be hosting live events on Zoom to inspire young people and imagine possible futures together. We will start broadcasting in New Zealand at 12:00 noon and continue our journey through different time-zones around the world like the Netherlands, the United States and Mexico, see the stops we make here.
You want to join the conversation, check if there is a session in your time zone / your language and just join by clicking this link. You can bring your ideas about the future or just listen to what other young people have to say. If you want to prepare for this session…. think of 10 advices you would give to your mayor for a better future!
You want to host a time-zone and facilitate a conversation, super! Reach out to us by using this link. You can spark the conversation by addressing the future in their local community and use the Sustainable Development Goals as a direction. Make sure to also bring some groups of young people that can kick-start their ideas as the conversation starter. For inspiration on how to prepare and facilitate check this document.
You are working with young people and believe in creating their future together, please join! We want to give all young people and organisations that support this mission a stage.
