The Global Futures Literacy Network is an academic community comprising more than twenty UNESCO Chairs and a number of non-governmental organisations from around the world who share experience in the field of futures studies and teaching foresight and planning skills.
In addition to research and educational activities, the UNESCO Chair on Future Studies participates in foresight projects, advises public associations, and holds expert events involving people who make key decisions about the future.
A scientific approach to forecasting allows researchers to more accurately predict crises, minimise their adverse effects, and plan and take steps to bring the desired future closer. Futures literacy is becoming an essential competence in drafting strategic plans and science and technology forecasts.
According to UNESCO, the mission of the Global Literacy Network is ‘to overcome the reliance on the illusion of certainty and the vulnerabilities it creates’.
