Future-oriented Science EDucation to enhance Responsibility and engagement in the society of Acceleration and uncertainty

Project description

Science education to help young generations build empowering visions of their future

Scientific and technological development has been driving fast societal changes and the educational systems are struggling to keep up the pace of such transformations. As a result, youth do not find in education the resources needed to construct empowering visions of their future and develop competences to navigate a complex, fragile and fast-changing society. Effective science education for future generations is urgently needed. The EU-funded FEDORA project aims to develop a future-oriented model enabling formal and informal science education to offer young people foresight, imaginative and action competences. Specifically, the project will enable research in science education to develop methodologies that target the main factors of present misalignment between educational systems and society. Recommendations for anticipatory policies will then be formulated for the creation of new, visionary attitudes on open schooling and institutional transformations.
