Future of International Development & Digital Skills

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” – Peter Drucker

At PLNT Leiden, we believe that in order to prepare for the future we should also allow spaces to reflect on it, in a safe and creative way.

We live in a globalized and interconnected world, but how will the future look like in 10 years from now? What are the skills we need for this unknown future? Who is driving this change? Individuals, companies, governments? What are the skills we need for a more inclusive and digital future?

In this New Conversation, Tere shares what digital intelligence means and what the type of digital skills are that we will need in the future. 

But, who is driving that change? Who is responsible and how can we create a more inclusive and sustainable future? Peter sheds light on how the world might look like in 10 years, and which things we can take into account to prevent a dystopian scenario.

Join this interactive New Conversation where we aim to create a better future together, one conversation at a time.
