The 3rd World Future Forum provided a platform for the presentation of new advances and research results in education theory and practice.

The Forum brought together academics, researchers, school leaders, and graduate students to share their research findings and best practices. The World Future Forum included presentations on innovative and emerging trends in educational practices to promote the successful transition of students beyond high school. All submissions are peer-reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research depth, accuracy, and relevance to the conference’s themes and topics.

Presentations took place virtually via Whova & Zoom.

The World Future Forum is organized by the Future Institute Research Center (FIRC).
