The world has become more multi-faceted and complex in recent years. To act appropriately, we need to understand the key forces and mechanisms in play - and project them into the future. With a special focus on “future education” (Futures Literacy), the science of independent, individual and collective understanding and anticipation of the future. Such understanding today is provided by two of the most important think tanks in the world: UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, and the OECD, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Both are dedicated to global cooperation and development.
Eurac Research’s Center for Advanced Studies brings both organisations together in Bozen-Bolzano for a joint foresight process: What awaits us in the coming years? What are the main trends? What do they mean for Europe and South Tyrol in particular?
UNESCO and OECD provide answers based on partly unpublished data, political and economic global strategies of leading world powers, and the foresight process of both organisations. Clear, generally understandable and practice-oriented, UNESCO and OECD explain the world that lies ahead - so that South Tyrol can draw its conclusions.
