What is MOTI?

We are a non-profit organisation that illuminates new planetary narratives, inspiring people and organizations to start creating futures that are trust driven and sustainable for all.
MOTI, short for Museum of Tomorrow International, was born in within the Museu do Amanhã in Rio de Janeiro to develop international cultural projects guided by the museum's values: Sustainability and Conviviality. Currently we are based in Amsterdam and registered under the Dutch law as a Foundation.

What do we do?

We create cultural and educational projects that cultivate a fresh point of view on sustainability and that nurture the belief in a new planetary regenerative system.

In our projects we adopt an optimistic outlook, using UNESCO’s Futures Literacy methodology to advance the Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Given the formidable socio-ecological challenges we face today, MOTI is dedicated to contributing to a more futures literate society.

What is Futures Literacy?

Futures Literacy is the capability to use different images and ideas about the future to help present decision-making. It is been disseminated internationally through the Futures Literacy Framework methodology (FLF) developed by Riel Miller, head of Foresight at UNESCO. Importantly, it is not about the accuracy of predictions but about understanding why and how anticipatory assumptions lead people to different images of the future. Moreover, how those assumptions influence today’s decisions and tomorrow’s construction.
