What is FutureNow?
FutureNow grew from an idea: what if Saskatchewan’s future leaders of tomorrow could meet with the leaders of today? What would it look like, and where should we hold it? The answers were clear: draw students from Saskatchewan’s postsecondary institutions and connect those students with members of the legislative assembly, right at the Legislature. We call it FutureNow, and we hope it becomes one of the province’s signature events. FutureNow aims to showcase the breadth and depth of student learning in the province, from research through scholarly thought, artistic and applied projects and from across all its institutions of higher education. Our Saskatchewan communities are rich with strength and legacy; FutureNow is a glimpse of the promise and possibilities of the world to come.
The first event was a huge success!
Students from University of Saskatchewan, University of Regina, Saskatchewan Polytech and First Nations University of Canada attended the first FutureNow Saskatchewan Student Showcase of research, scholarly, artistic and applied projects. The event connected sitting MLAs at the Saskatchewan Legislature with students on Tuesday, May 3rd 2022.
Held in the Caucus Boardroom on the second floor, just down the hall from the Rotunda, imagine the event as a science and society fair, but with all adults and incredibly sophisticated projects.
