3 ways to unlock your dream internship

Perhaps it’s a strange time to write this advice, but I can’t help thinking about what I wished someone had told me six months (or even a year) ago, that would’ve helped me get to where I am now with a little less blood, sweat and stress. Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, a recent graduate or just looking for a career change, an internship may be the best option to get your foot in the door and begin your new career. But (surprise, surprise) you’re not the only one looking. Recent headlines involving internships have drawn our attention to the plight of the unpaid intern, but the reality is that a major reason many of these positions remain unpaid is the massive number of people willing to do these jobs. Europe alone has 4.5 million interns each year, 59% of whom are unpaid.

An old coal mine in Scotland was turned into a vast universe made out of plants and stones

This is just what the Duke of Buccleuch and architect Charles Jencks did with an open cast coal mine located within Scotland’s Lowther Hills. The 22-hectare site was an industrial eyesore and since it was no longer in use, local villagers lobbied the duke to do something with it. But the villagers didn’t just want it to look better -- they also wanted something that would replace the jobs lost when the coal mine closed down. The result is the the Crawick Multiverse, a universe made up entirely out of plants, dirt and rocks. According to The New Scientist, at first sight, the area looks like a system of earthworks “dominated by two vast mounds and two stone circles,” but after looking at the map, one finds that the mounds represent the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies.

Master Foresight Innovation - Models of Futures Education for the 21st Century. Business-oriented futures programmes. WFSF: Pedagogical Resources. The WFSF is aware of the complex, critical, accelerating and inter-dependent nature of rapid change across the planet and recognises the value for all planetary citizens in understanding the forces that shape the future, as well as our individual and communal roles in shaping our possible futures. In this light the WFSF Online Centre for Pedagogical Resources in Futures Studies takes a broad view of futures pedagogy. It intends to integrate a wide range of pedagogical resources for teaching and learning about futures studies. The resources being created within this project can be utilised in manifold ways by diverse communities of practice depending on their particular needs.

The following catagories are under development and represent a kind of proto-taxonomy based on the first influx of futures pedagogical material that has come to us from our own WFSF members. As more material is contributed to the database, we will be able increase the categories and refine the taxonomy. Energy. Roger Caldwell Home Page. Hawaii Research Center for Futures Studies.
