What do you think childhood in Canada will be like in 2030?
Generation 2030 is a project about imagining possibilities for the futures of children and youth in Canada. Using a process called Foresight, we are trying to uncover the ideas and behaviours that will influence well-being for all children and youth in Canada in 2030.
What kind of futures do we want for Canada’s children? What can we do now to make Canada the best place for children and youth for Generation 2030? What aspirations and outcomes will matter to all of Canada’s children?
Generation 2030 is driven by the work of UNICEF Canada, who are looking to raise Canada to number one on UNICEF's global index of child and youth well-being by the year 2030. Wondering where Canada sits on the index today? Want to know more about this project?
FOUR VISIONS OF THE FUTURE
As part of this process, we created four scenarios of childhood in Canada in 2030. They're named after the role of children in each scenario - The Silent Child, The Child Citizen, The Youth Uprising and The Childhood Grind. Click on each vision to learn more about childhood, about work and society, and to hear a story from a child's perspective in that scenario.
