In December 2017, 7 organizations from all across Europe started an exciting journey toward the FUTURE.
The team from Bulgaria, Greece, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal and the UK, developed a unique career platform in 3D virtual world http://future-time-traveller.eu. It aims at introducing the generation Z to the jobs of the future, the impact of social transformations and technology on the emerging types of skills and occupations. We researched numerous resources and reports and "translated" the information in a user-friendly content. Based on it, we created 7 game-based learning scenarios, which use elements of escape rooms. They help young people explore the future of work. We organized a European contest for young people and collected 93 original ideas of future jobs. The platform has been used by more than 700 young people and more than 90% confirm it has helped them to improve their information, decision making, innovation and positive attitude towards the future.
We elaborated a methodology and trained VET trainers and career advisors how to develop innovative career guidance tools, to respond to the young people's demand for more future-looking information and support.
