Understanding complex correlations, knowing what’s fake news, standing up for yourself and others: these are just some of the skills that young people need for the future. How can such knowledge be taught? As part of Schools of Tomorrow 3, students at eleven Berlin schools and a project group in Naples will team with artists and everyday experts to explore how schools can generate agency and creativity for new futures.

In projects at eleven Berlin schools, they develop collective visions of the future for living together in the city, they’ll research the hierarchization of knowledge and dreams, develop empowering strategies for dealing with politics or research the consequences of climate change and digitization.

At Dear Future, the results of the school projects will be presented at HKW. In a playful course, visitors can immerse themselves in the projects’ contents while students share their messages to the future.

With a spoken word performance, artist Tanasgol Sabbagh will open a discourse program tying in with the subjects of the school projects.

With bildungsLab* (Samia Aden, María do Mar Castro Varela, Narmada Saraswati, Saphira Shure, Purnima Vater), Michael Merz, Thomas Meyer, Tanasgol Sabbagh, Ulrike Schulz, Christiane Wagner, the school project participants and others
