The learning and knowledge needed, seen from the Future


What learning and knowledge do we need to defend and create a desirable future? And how can society address these needs?

In this session, we invite you to imagine living in a desirable future in the year 2050. A future in which the major transitions which are required to halt climate change and mass extinction have actually already happened. Looking back at the year 2023, we ask what additional knowledge and learning processes have made these transitions possible.

Key questions to discuss include:

What are the skills and knowledge required to defend a desirable future?
Which learning processes are required to develop these skills?
What needs to happen to put in place the necessary learning processes?

This session is organized by Future Earth in partnership with BRIDGES and in collaboration with the Earth Politics Centre, Université Paris Cité, and CERDI (Clermont Auvergne University – CNRS) / European Centre of Excellence on Sustainability.
