Metafuture School has extended scholarships to five extraordinary Pakistani young scholars to develop their skills in Futures Studies and Transformative Foresight. The participants receiving the Global Futures Fellowship from Pakistan are, Muhammad Muhammad Mudabbir Majid, Muhammad Moosa Hashim, Alina Salman, Hisham Sajid and Anum Qasim. All these young talented youth are between the ages of 18-35 years of age.The winners of the Fellowship were nominated by AGAHI for their dedication and hard work, while excelling in their professional careers, creating social dividends for the communities they work in. Sohail Inayatullah, Founder and Chief Instructor of the Metafuture School said, “Our intent is that, these young Pakistanis can use the information and knowledge from the field and School to develop practical anticipatory action learning projects in their own country. These projects can be about personal futures i.e. inner transformation or about broad external transformations, such as, the futures of water, or clean cities, of peer to peer solar networks or about national and global issues such as climate change 2050 or Asia 2050”. He further said, “we hope they work within Pakistan and the broader futures community to make a difference.“I am very excited about encouraging young generation of Pakistanis to focus on Futures Thinking and Strategic Foresight, we were able to nominate some of the most brilliant minds from the country, we are hoping to expand the nomination process in 2021 and are extremely grateful to Metafuture school for facilitating the fellowship and certification”, said Puruesh Chaudhary, Founder and President AGAHI, the flagship research institution on Futures and Foresight research in Pakistan.
