Educate. Empower. Create.
What is FUTOR?
FUTOR is an ERASMUS+ initiative aimed at high school students from the Outermost Regions of the European Union (Canary Islands, Açores and La Réunion) that enables young citizens in the EU Outermost Regions to use digital technologies to envision and bring forward desired futures through systemic thinking and interaction with others using digital art as a means of self-expression and engagement.
Empower students and young people with systemic futures thinking skills through international collaboration in a ‘climate’ supportive of individual creativity, critical thinking skills and digital literacies
Educate students and young people about local and global environmental challenges using the DPSIR (Drivers, Pressures, States, Impacts & Responses) framework
Empower teachers with new pedagogical methods and tools
Contribute to raising a generation that is ready and willing to improve the state of the natural environment
Raise awareness of fundamental skills that are often overlooked in today’s formal, STEM-inclined education, such as creativity, collaboration and systems thinking
Create a durable and shareable positive example for other educational organizations in the European Union and beyond
