We are delighted to announce our partnership with Ideo London, a London based chapter, who are part of the global design company who will be working with Future Foundations to deliver bold and innovative content at our inaugural Global Social Leaders STEAM programme.

New for 2018, GSL STEAM is a year-long leadership experience launching with a two-week intensive residential designed to nurture the innovators of tomorrow who will learn how to develop solutions to problems, and will go on to design a new product and enter our global competition.

IDEO are a company committed to creating positive impact. From designing the first manufacturable mouse for Apple to advancing the practice of human-centered design, they have long been at the forefront of creating change through design.

Working with organizations around the world on complex challenges from mobility and food to healthcare and education, IDEO tackle big questions and they will be bringing their creative solutions focussed mind-set to GSL STEAM.

Example of Big Questions IDEO are working on

Designing for the future of autonomous mobility, multi-modal transportation, and the ever-changing technology that fuels it.

Pushing the edges of technology, business, and design in a quickly evolving industry to tackle complex global food challenges.

Building products, services, and experiences that advance healthcare for patients and providers.

Partnering with changemakers around the world to design the most innovative systems, tools and experiences for learners of all ages.

We are looking forward to working with IDEO and introducing their inspiration and expertise to young people on GSL STEAM this Summer.




We believe innovation is the way to ensure a more prosperous and sustainable future. Innovation has been associated with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – the STEM subjects, which we believe alongside Art and Design can help to transform our economy in the 21st century just as science and technology did in the last century.

This is a unique course will bring together young people from around the world, with expert partners and facilitators who will inspire, challenge and prepare them to develop a solution.

GSL STEAM will take place at Queens College, Taunton between Monday 16th – Friday 27th July 2018. For more information, click here.
