The Institute for the Future predicts that our future learning and working pathways will be based on skills in five key areas. Some of them will be more important to you than others, but they will all be part of our future.

Areas of future skills:
  • Make Yourself Known with skills for managing your reputation and identity
  • Befriend the Machines to curate, create and simulate our complex world
  • Build Your Crew with startups, communities and networks
  • Make Sense with storytelling, frameworks for action and ecosystem thinking
  • Keep it All Going with skills for caring, sharing and evolving human capacities

Which skills do seem most interesting, important or most inspiring to you? Find more details in this Future Skills Map!

Choose one, several or all!
