Re-imagining Education Together
Autens Future Schools is a dedicated, experienced bunch of consultants chasing a crazy dream of transforming education so that every person can lead a valuable happy life full of opportunities, passion and a big love of learning. We do so through re-imagining school and education, through inspiring and training leaders and teachers, through designing inspiring learning spaces and through creating a new generation of school facilities with architects. All this is done in the spirit of student voice, co-creation, fun and passionate dedication to people and learning.
We are fortunate to be part of the most exciting, brave projects that insist that learning is fun, that everyone can be a successful learner, and that the future is amazing if we make it so. We work at all levels – schools, educational institutions, local and national government, and international organizations – and we love connecting the world across the board.

PROJECT-BASED LEARNING Academy
Our Project-based Learning Academy moved online, continuing to train hundreds of teachers, teaching teams and school leaders to develop authentic, engaging and future-oriented learning for students.
Co-creation and cultivating ownership is in our DNA. We have moved our engagement processes online to secure a continuous strong teacher and student voice in the design of education facilities & learning space design.
Children across the Globe have never had this much in common. As the world shuts down around them, we link them up. We run weekly global online chats for students. Link Online Learners is set up in collaboration with other globally awarded educators from more than 10 countries.
We are fortunate to be a part of an inspiring extended family of forward-thinking schools, networks, consultants and change-makers across the world.
We happily share our eco-system of innovation in education with our clients and collaborators. The whole purpose is that the best ideas travel seamlessly in our shared global world. Seeing what is possible out there gives confidence and reassurance that you can do it too!
