Calling Young Artists, Thinkers & Leaders!

Turn it Around: Flashcards for Education Futures’ is a learning tool for adults, made by youth, to reimagine our approach to education, and our relationship with nature and the living world during this time of climate crisis.

Usually, flashcards are designed by educators for students and children. This deck of flashcards will be designed by you for education policymakers, politicians, and teachers - to challenge them to think, see and act in new ways. By flipping who teaches who, this project is a reminder that everyone - and everything - must change.

We invite you(th) from age 0 to 25 to reimagine our approach to education, our relationship with nature and our connection to the living world during this time of crisis.

Help us design a deck of flashcards that show how ecological justice can be achieved.

Submit your thoughts, visions, dreams and artwork! Your submission will help to envision an education for a just transition to a more sustainable world. Select submissions will be gathered into a global collection of FLASHCARDS FOR EDUCATION FUTURES and introduced to policymakers at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) and the launch of UNESCO’s Future of Education report. 

Deadline to submit is July 23rd!
