About the project
Future Narratives introduces youth workers and young people to the concept of “Futures Literacy,” developed by UNESCO in the past 10 years, seeking to study “the frames people use to understand tomorrow.” According to UNESCO, “Futures Literacy is a universally accessible skill that builds on the innate human capacity to imagine the future, and offers a clear, field tested solution to poverty-of-the-imagination”. It uses storytelling as the key tool to activate the capacity to reflect on the past, the present and the future and to recognise different approaches to them and their interpretation, thus fostering the understanding of the power of culture, stories and visions in enabling a better future.

Youth workers and young people (18-30 years old). Priority will be given to young people with fewer opportunities or with difficult backgrounds.
