Futures Literacy in New Zealand

by Stephanie Pride, Bog Frame, & Derek Gill

ABSTRACT

The FutureMakers project presented a unique opportunity to explore conditions for the acquisition “futures literacy” in New Zealand. It was a collaboration between Landcare Research; the Institute of Policy Studies, Victoria University of Wellington; and Secondary Futures, OECD Schooling for Tomorrow/Ministry of Education. The project deliberately used open processes and intentionally generated both predictive and nonpredictive futuring products. By observing the experiences and reactions of participants and end-users, the project identified current levels of futures capability and “next questions” for building futures literacy in New Zealand. The learners’ experience is at the centre of these questions.
