Facing the Future is an international leader whose mission is to create tools for educators that equip and motivate students to develop critical thinking skills, build global awareness, and engage in positive solutions for a sustainable future. We are a program of Western Washington University.

In a world where the lives of our neighbors next door are inextricably linked to those of our neighbors abroad, students need to understand the linkages between local and global issues, and how they can personally help to build positive local and global communities.

We empower teachers with the resources they need to ignite their students’ interest in complex global issues while helping them achieve academically.

Mission & Vision:

We create tools for educators that equip and motivate learners to build global awareness and to envision a most sustainable world of thriving societies and healthy environments.
