Many academics and initiatives are already exploring how to adapt research, teaching 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. We connect these people, and make it easier to act.
In some of our hubs we compile and repurpose existing material so that it is easy to digest. In others, we work with our community to design original events, tools and infrastructure.
We are producing resources for use by academics of all disciplines, locations and levels of seniority.
Interested in contributing? We want our work to be as useful as possible. Explore our hubs to access our resources, find out how you can feed into their development, highlight best practice you've come across, or share your own story of change. Whether you are an academic, academic-related staff, student or non-academic, there are ways for you to get involved.
Teach for a future
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 Teaching 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.
Engagement for a Future
We help academics to communicate the broader and more complex discipline-spanning reality of the emerging world.
Our Communicating Complex Crises toolkit is a crucial resource for any academic keen to hone their skills in communicating the interconnection of environmental and social crises.
We are also building a living database of annotated real-life examples of people finding agency within complex crisis, and are developing a media training programme.Find out more
Research for a future
Crises are still advancing despite our best efforts. Narrow approaches too often serve harmful systems or solve one problem while worsening another, and the integrated, experience-based wisdom of communities and practitioners is often overlooked.
We need more diverse, equitable, and plentiful collaboration to stop environmental and social harms at their source and move towards a fairer and more sustainable world. But not enough support exists to foster new connections, build trust, and co-design research that benefits all. We’re doing four things to help change this.Find out more
Revitalise your institution
Thousands of academics, academic-related staff, and students across the world are already engaging their institutions to meet their commitments to environmental action. Most of these are operating alone or in small groups, disconnected from others in similar positions.
We are developing strategic toolkits and community support for staff and students seeking to collaboratively raise research and teaching that’s fit for future purpose up departmental, faculty, and institutional agendas.Find out more
Connect with peers
Do you feel a disconnect between your professional role and the urgency of humanity’s colliding environmental and social crises?
Join fellow academics in a workshop exploring the psychological impacts of working on the worsening crisis, and how to navigate these challenges while maintaining professional credibility.
