FUTURE WORLDS CHALLENGE

Future Worlds Challenge is a dynamic multi-platform learning experience which gives individuals the skills to succeed in tomorrow's world. Participants learn how to use Design & Systems Thinking to design a society of the future, and use game theory to challenge themselves to create the future they want to see.

The program allows individuals to develop cognitive flexibility, critical thinking, ethical frameworks, and gives them a stronger awareness of the risks and opportunities new technologies present to humanity and themselves.

HOW IT WORKS

Future Worlds Challenge is designed to leverage the best of face-to-face discussion and online learning by by combining a physical card game which explores our Society Building Canvas, with matching curated online content from around the world.

The program is a non-linear journey, based on the random path generated by the selected cards and the natural curiosity of the learner. It allows people to dive deeper on subjects that excite them and gives them space to imagine their biggest vision of the future.

Participants work in teams to strategise the key elements which make up their society, while dealing with unexpected spanners which will test the resilience of the design. At the end of the journey, teams present their world and must defend why their society would develop the happiest citizens.

TESTIMONIALS

What past students have said about Future Worlds Challenge facilitator Jamie's entrepreneurship courses.

  • I not only learned about technology, motivation, ways to see life differently, what is possible in the world, I also learned how to develop an idea from concept to production and how valuable it is to reach out to others for their opinion every step of the way. I feel this is no doubt the way of the future and how lessons in the future will be taught and run by the facilitator. Jamie just got in first and started this trend using his forward thinking.

I loved and enjoyed every single second of it, every video, every reading, every presentation. As a student, I am able to say that there is nothing more fulfilling than having a passionate teacher with a tremendous desire to teach and learn with the students.

  • This course is like the futuristic course for students. It opened up a whole new world of learning. A world where you are directly fed lessons but then left to independently learn them.
