The Future Leaders Podcast: Episode 2: The Future


Episode 2: The Future

How is the future imagined by the future generation?

In this episode, we engage in conversations with children between 5 and 12 years old about what they like about the world, what they would like to change, how they imagine the future and how they see the roles of current leaders. These conversations are ignited by artworks created by the children when they were asked to ‘Draw the future’.

Don’t miss the online art gallery below. It features the children’s drawings, giving you the opportunity to travel their visual and spoken narratives. An orange dot means the child has identified that character as the leader.
