Project ID 570SAU3000

Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University and UNESCO are joining forces to cultivate world class research, teaching and intergenerational community-engagement by improving practical, contextualized capacities to understand the future. Such improvements, as UNESCO's pioneering work in the field have shown, depend on gaining a better understanding of both why and how people and organisations anticipate. To develop and strengthen such capacities regionally and globally, PMU and UNESCO will apply and test cutting-edge action-learning and action-research techniques to train PMU researchers and to be showcased to the rest of the Global Futures Literacy Network.
