Archive of Futures Past
What will my life look like in 20 years and what will the world around me look like? Which things will gain or lose importance? What innovations will accompany our daily lives? Future capsules seal children's visions and wishes for the future. The visions are safely stored in a museum archive. After 20 years they are opened again. The generation that is now helping to shape the future looks back at its own wishes and visions of its former self.
Who gets to shape the future? Dealing with questions about the future requires an intergenerational and democratic process. In children and young people, looking into the future meets with a joy of discovery and intrinsic motivation. Their own awareness, their understanding of the world around them, their knowledge and their scope for shaping the future are expanded.
It’s the childrens’ future and they can help shape it. They take responsibility and implement their visions of a better world. They experience the powerful and positive effect of being allowed to wish. Now the journey into their own future begins.
