Why we work with Future Academy

The primary global challenge that Future Academy addresses is the need to develop a new generation of leaders equipped with the skills, mindset, and commitment to address complex societal and environmental challenges. In an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world, issues such as climate change, social inequality, technological disruption, and global health crises require innovative solutions and collaborative approaches.

Minds Studio shares Future Academy’s aims to tackle this challenge by providing ambitious individuals with the knowledge, resources, and opportunities to drive positive change and create a more sustainable and equitable future for all.

What we worked on

Curriculum design

Minds Studio played a pivotal role in shaping the lesson plan design for Future Academy, catering to both facilitators and students. This encompassed crafting pre-work activities, developing supplementary materials, designing assessments, and outlining the runsheet for the entire 10-week program.

Initially, a dedicated team from Minds Studio participated in a rigorous 2-day virtual hackathon, leveraging science-based pedagogical approaches rooted in active learning principles to produce initial guidelines and prototypes.

Following this, a select group of Minds Studio experts continued to collaborate closely with Future Academy, refining and expanding upon the initial curriculum based on feedback gathered from the pilot course.
