  • How can the field of Futures Studies contribute to rethinking learning?
  • How do we teach and learn about futures?
  • What are the images of the future that shape current conceptions of the systems that generate and diffuse knowledge?
  • What are the images of the future that inspire a reimagining of the attributes, role and functioning of learning?
  • What are the new motivations, means and approaches to learning?
  • What kinds of learning settings could there be in the future and what infrastructures and resources will be required? 
  • In which way are education policies changing within the future?
  • What human capacities will be needed to enable sustainable futures within the limited boundaries of our planet?
