Future Generations first began tackling humanity’s toughest challenges in 1992: understanding how to create community-driven change that is both sustainable and scalable. Future Generations was founded to promote the newly synthesized method for community-based sustainable development.
At Future Generations University, you can learn with and from a community of global leaders passionate about making lasting change that improves life and advances justice and sustainability all over the world and in your community. Study examples of global best practice in Community Development from international experts, and learn how to adapt and apply them to your local community context.
Future Generations research discovers answers useful to communities. The process unites scholars and practitioners at the local level with usable and affordable methods; it also disseminates these globally through training and publication.
The more common academic research focus is scholars leading typically sophisticated experiments and seeking universal answers. Many universities advance this field. Future Generations focuses on research methods and their dissemination that communities can use to answer local questions to inform local social change.
Disciplines to be concentrated on include: health, climate change, conservation, peace, and applied education.
