ABOUT image
Global Futures Education offers high-level online education for entrepreneurs, professionals and executives wanting to confront and manage the intensifying global challenges of the 21st Century and to find solutions.

Global Futures Education was founded by Professor Jennifer Gidley, PhD as an extension of her international futures consultancy and almost decade-long leadership of the world’s foremost futures organisation, a UNESCO partner.

Jennifer's leading-edge insights that inform and enrich the programs were developed over decades of research and are introduced in her highly successful Oxford University Press book The Future: A Very Short Introduction.

Each online course draws together over 100 learning resources including videos, articles, reports and other digital assets from a vast trove of authoritative sources. The courses are curated into a coherent, accessible matrix within a highly professional, and easy-to-use LMS Learning Platform, which can be white-labelled for organisations wanting to use their own branding. Courses are regularly updated so you can gain key knowledge and understanding to fast-track your career opportunities in a rapidly changing and risky world.

The Global Futures Education program comprises three comprehensive online courses:
1. Global Futures of Climate. LAUNCHED July 2023.
2. Global Socio-Cultural Futures. LAUNCHED February 2024.
3. Global Geo-Political Futures. LAUNCHED MAY 2024.

Each course includes 12 lessons. To develop critical and integrated thinking, the paradox modality is used with 50% of the lessons demonstrating the challenges and 50% introducing the counter-trends and emerging innovative solutions.

The solutions offered align with ALL the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
