Hello Friend!

Do you care to listen? Does your phone irritate you?

Gentle-like a dove or radiating colours like the peacock are all characteristics attributed to  animals.

Reflect on your relationship with your device  

How does your phone makes you feel? How is it holding you to constantly donate your time to it?

Young people at the exhibition discovered how their phone interacts with them, how best to use the phones and lots more about their digital life.

what the Future wants



The International Center for Accelerated Development (ICAD) is hosting the What the Future Wants Exhibition at the National Library Jos (Nigeria).

What the Future Wants is a youth initiative from Tactical Tech that aims to put young people in the driving seat of their digital futures through education, co-creation, and capacity building.

Young people grow up in an environment that is increasingly driven by and dependent upon digital technologies. Their social, learning, and play spaces are being encroached upon by ubiquitous technologies so that the divide between public and private, online and offline is being eroded. At a time of crucial development, this leaves them exposed to a unique set of challenges, such as tech habits and addiction, information pollution, algorithms and discrimination, and data surveillance.

What the Future Wants seeks to define and address these challenges alongside young people and those that support them. Through research, educational curricula, and creative interventions, we will work towards increasing the data literacy of the next generation so that they can think critically and proactively about the digital environment they want to live in now and in the future from Tactical Tech that aims to put young people in the driving seat of their digital futures through education, co-creation and capacity building.
