We are developing learning materials for a new global higher education initiative designed to support students to develop the skills needed to collaboratively tackle 21st Century global challenges to create pathways for sustainable futures.
Future 17 is a new global initiative between the University of Exeter, QS and leading international universities designed to support students to develop the skills needed to collaboratively tackle 21st Century global challenges thorough working with professionals to create pathways for innovative solutions to real-world issues associated with one or more of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Future 17 will enable students to collaborate with learners from a consortium of global partner universities in international, interdisciplinary and multicultural teams to tackle challenges through projects defined by third-party organisations (businesses, charities, NGOs etc.).
Lestari is developing course content for the Future 17 module.
The University of Exeter will be running a pilot of Future 17 in 2022 with a small number of projects (circa 6) in order to test the programme structure, induction material and student demand.
