What The Future Wants

Both Monday and Tuesday


What The Future Wants: An interactive exhibition to raise digital technology awareness among young people

What the Future Wants, a new interactive exhibition by Tactical Tech, aims to put young people in the driving seat of their digital futures. How can young people create new conscious digital habits? How could families and schools be part of this process? What the Future Wants explores key questions at the core of young people’s digital experience.

What the Future Wants  was co-developed alongside 200 young people between the ages of 13 and 18 from all across Europe. It features a collection of resources that can be easily used by teachers, librarians and others, including: four easy-to-print posters,  activities, a set-up manual, workshop curricula and feedback cards.
