The Futures Project
Media innovation and sustainability network
The futures project is a project undertaken jointly by the Aga Khan University Graduate School of Media and Communications (AKU GSMC) and the Deutsche Welle Akademie (DWA). The multiyear initiative features a Network of Regional Partners from which would grow leading-edge training and coaching programmes as well as a world-class, globally prominent Innovation Center.
