“The Future.” We say the words all the time, but what do we really mean? How do our stories about yesterday and today help shape tomorrow? Could a different idea of the future change the present? And how are we all entangled in the mysterious process of bringing the future into being?! Join us for a session of playing with time, with Professor Keri Facer.
Keri Facer is Professor of Educational and Social Futures at the University of Bristol and Visiting Zennström professor of Climate Change Leadership at Uppsala University. She’s spent years working on the relationship between education and the future, at the moment she’s particularly interested learning practices that respond to disruptive change with care, fairness and hope.
