Continuous learning propelled by multidimensional creation of futures knowledge


How does learning change? What is the role of learning in tomorrow’s world? What, where and when to learn? How do we develop our futures literacy? How could futures education become part of all learning?

Concerning these visions and perspectives on learning, we received fresh insights from the thoughts of Njeri Mwagiru, keynote speaker at the 21st International Futures Conference ‘Learning Futures – Futures of Learning’ organised by Finland Futures Research Centre and Finland Futures Academy in collaboration with the Finnish National Agency for Education.

Njeri Mwagiru is a senior futurist with the University of Stellenbosch, at the Institute for the Future (IFR) where the FFRC has previously had fruitful collaboration between our universities in the form of researcher exchanges, lectures and futures workshops.

Professor Emerita Sirkka Heinonen wrote a blog post on Dr. Mwagiru's insights. You can find it at the FFRC's blog.
