The Faces of Tomorrow shares inspiring stories about individuals’ sustainable journeys from all over the world in order to raise awareness on environmental challenges and educate people on the climate crisis. We believe that these stories could motivate people to implement environmentally friendly habits and engage in their social responsibilities for a better society. The team consists of a group of like-minded people from a variety of different backgrounds that are united by the motivation to prompt positive change in our society.

The Faces of Tomorrow is a digital story-telling platform that was created during the European Institute of Technology Climate-KIC Journey, Europe’s largest climate innovation summer school. This six-week programme runs every summer with the objective of uniting hundreds of motivated international students, researchers and entrepreneurs to develop innovative solutions to pressing environmental issues. One of the many projects that emerged from this cross-collaboration was the Faces of Tomorrow – an Instagram page created to raise environmental awareness on sustainable practices and to improve effective climate communication. It was developed to promote a positive and proactive approach to sustainability through storytelling.
By sharing initiatives and tips from inspiring individuals that take an active role in creating a sustainable future, The Faces of Tomorrow aims to connect and empower people to catalyse climate action. Whether it is a small positive impact or a big project, The Faces of Tomorrow values each step that is taken to create a more climate-resilient society. The platform gives people an opportunity to engage in continuous learning, share ideas, raise awareness on climate issues and support each other towards a sustainable journey.
Given the positive response of this platform, it has now expanded to include an official website, where individuals can share inspiring stories about their eco-friendly lifestyle changes. Furthermore, The Faces of Tomorrow’s long-term vision is to collaborate and partner with NGOs, schools and student unions at various Universities to organise stewardship events such as clean-up drives and workshops. By engaging in community awareness and youth empowerment, The Faces of Tomorrow hopes to drive accountability at the individual level.
