Take action: explore F4F's resources
Many academics and initiatives are already exploring how to adapt research, education and engagement practices to make them fit for a future of colliding environmental and social crises. Thousands more are aware of the problems with the status quo, and are looking for something to do about it.
Our resources collate, build on and promote this existing work. They are designed to make it easier for academics to act and are suitable for use by those of all disciplines and levels of seniority.
Crises are still advancing despite our best efforts. Narrow approaches too often serve harmful systems or solve one problem while worsening another. Meanwhile, the integrated, experience-based wisdom of communities and practitioners is often overlooked.
Our Research for a Future toolkit is for any researcher who feels a responsibility for the work they do to help limit harm from these crises, and is keen to explore how their work can better contribute towards a fairer, safer, and more sustainable world.
In a world of colliding social and environmental crises, every discipline is crucial to the pursuit of a safer, fairer, and more sustainable future.
Faculty for a Future's Seed Library is a growing database of open-access educational resources. We hope it will help students and educators transition to a transformative education system that is fit for future purpose.
With knowledge being selectively siloed, and a narrow range of expertise platformed by the media, sufficiently open scrutiny of the world's complex crises and the responsibility of those in power is not happening.
Our Communicating Complex Crises toolkit is a crucial resource for any academic keen to hone their skills in telling more complete and authentic stories about harm done by today’s entangled social and environmental crises – and potential ways out of them.
