We use the future every day: we predict, we fear and we hope. The future, however, does not exist. It only exists in our imagination.
In this context, Futures Literacy, developed within UNESCO, is the capability of imagining diverse and multiple futures, and using futures as lenses through which we look at the present anew (Miller, 2018).
Our ECOLAH consortium makes use of Futures Literacy to empower exploration and invention that take advantage of uncertainty and complexity.
In this regard, a Futures Literacy Workshop has been held in Groningen (NL) on 17 February 2022 by Loes Damhof and her team from the UNESCO Chair on Futures Literacy at Hanze University of Applied Sciences. The workshop enabled our participants to reveal, reframe and rethink the assumptions of our project agenda.
