The cardgame empowering citizens to imagine the future

Reshuffle the cards to co-create an equitable and thriving society

FUTUREs is a modular and cooperative game for citizens to become agents of change. It offers an optimistic vision based on imagination and action for players to support climate, biodiversity, social justice and wellbeing.

The game combines strategy and creativity: it can be used as a board game, educational inventory and workshop support.

FUTUREs' 128 cards will give you a better understanding of today's issues while inspiring you to join the happy adventure of co-creating tomorrow's world.

It can be played by 2 players or more, aged 6+, with 5+ alternative game rules.

128 cards to imagine a thriving future

FUTUREs aims to empower citizens to become agents of change through several card games, an interactive card directory, as well as workshops to help citizens connect with their emotions and imagine the future.

  • Board game

    Multiple rules to play inclusive games with easy dynamics to have fun while learning. Game modes include individual, team, competitive and cooperative rules for all players.

  • Card directory

    Directory of the 128 cards to better understand, learn and take action for the future. Articles, podcasts, news articles, reports, art performances, and solutions are featured.

  • Educational resources

    A set of workshops to use the cards helps people connect, get creative, and take action. Fit for educators, students, companies, policymakers, and changemakers.

Playing for change

Education for sustainable development is needed with converging crises affecting citizens in their day-to-day lives. We need a new inspiring narrative engaging people to implement the just transition.

The education curriculum is often behind today’s reality and there is a greater need for inclusive, hopeful, and holistic tools to empower a rising generation of leaders.

There is a great opportunity to propose alternatives giving citizens the ability to understand, be inspired, and act for a thriving future.

Council of the Future Workshop

The Council of the Future is an invitation to imagine the world of tomorrow so that it meets the needs of future generations. 

With the FUTUREs cards in hand, participants will be following in the footsteps of their great-grandchildren, adopting a forward-thinking approach.

In a spirit of intergenerational justice, the workshop is an opportunity for CEOs, policymakers, and leaders to sketch out the contours of tomorrow's world.

The concept is simple: a group of citizens responds to a problem by proposing a collective vision and an action plan in line with the needs of future generations.
