World Future Forum 2021

The 2nd World Future Forum took place virtually on April 22nd-23rd, 2021. The Forum shared recent research for school administrators, academics, and other professionals to present a wide array of perspectives and expertise in the pursuit of excellence in education. The conference hosted presenters to share their latest research papers and best practices on topics related to the overarching conference theme of “An Ideal Vision on K-16 Education and Beyond.”

Future Institute Research Center (FIRC), which is headquartered in Schaumburg, Illinois, spearheads the World Future Forum. FIRC’s primary aim is to unpack a myriad of dynamics that attend the transition from high school to college and career. Toward that aim, FIRC plans and conducts empirical research with the aim of informing both policy and practice. FIRC strives to share its research findings with researchers and practitioners. In addition, FIRC helps to prepare future researchers by supporting graduate student research projects that align with its core mission.

We are also pleased to invite you to the 3rd World Future Forum 2022 to attend and submit your research paper or best practice presentation on topics related to the theme of “Innovative Trends & Global Competencies for Successful Student Transition.” The conference will take place both in person in Chicago and virtually on April 21-22, 2022.
