Futures of Education, Educations for the Future

24 july 2019 at 12 meetup about education and design thinking

Ours is a time of transitions. A thousand forces are interacting in our world every day, so it’s more and more difficult to foresee what the next decades will look like – and how could our educational system prepare students for the future, if the possible futures are countless?

During the Meetup, we’ll discover what forces of change our younger generations will face, what signals we’re already detecting in Luxembourg and what new skills are emerging. But we’ll also look for inspiration – from educators, schools and entire countries, who are imagining new educations. For this meeting we have chosen the format of the World Café, because we don’t just want to discuss ideas and share our research – we want to create and kickstart a change!

Moreover, we’ll be hosting the meetup during “Discover Design Thinking” - our annual training course, funded by Eramus+ within the frame of Erasmus+ Youth programme. From 22nd July, we’ll teach the fundamentals of Design Thinking to 20 youth workers from all over Europe, and they will join us during the World Café to share their perspective and experience. In the end, it’s about creating a common vision for the future(s) of education – because it takes a global community to solve a global challenge!
