Teach the Future

As an established discipline in major universities and businesses around the world, don’t you think it’s time to teach the future in secondary schools and colleges?


How Can You Help?
We need support to make futures studies a reality. Join the community, share your futures experience, support our efforts financially and open discussions on futures thinking whenever you have the chance.

Community Partners – Get Involved
We see an education system that teaches futures thinking to secondary and college students as a routine subject. Our goal is to provide support and resources to at least 1,000 educators actively teaching futures thinking in their classrooms.

Educators – Teach the Future Now
Educators are the critical component of Teach the Future. We need teachers actively teaching the future and sharing their experiences. Our curriculum materials will be maintained under Creative Commons license, and made available for free so that others can actively teach the future in their classes.
