Bring Your Future to the Table

IMPACT: Learning Edition is a board game that uses futures thinking to help you imagine and think critically about changes that could impact the future of learning. Players take on diverse characters – each with their own role, values and unique set of preferred future conditions – and compete to create a world where their future role is relevant and secure.

Perfect for three to five players, IMPACT: Learning Edition helps players to recognize the roles they play in shaping the future they want – even after the game is over.
