We hope that this collective exercise will contribute to enriching and stimulating public debate on Brazilian Basic Education in different forums – from schools and communities to society at large, going beyond the issues, possibilities, and even beyond the scenarios drafted by this group of people at this time in the country.
The exercise contained in the creation of the scenarios did not intend to offer answers nor to state truths, but rather to serve as input and as a provocation to spark other analyses, reflections, conversations and disputes, to enrich the political debate and broaden the scope of those working to create the future of Basic Education in our country.

Members of the Convening Group for the Transformative Scenarios for Basic Education in Brazil Project.
In 2014, a group of diverse stakeholders from the field of education in Brazil – civil society organizations, social movements, government, international organizations, key opinion leaders, corporate institutes and foundations, trade unions, teachers, school principals, parents, students and members of the academia – got together to think about the future of Basic Education in Brazil.
The Scenarios Team expressed their visions about the present and the future through interviews, workshops and virtual exchanges and, together, they created a set of four possible scenarios for the future: the Transformative Scenarios for Basic Education in Brazil, 2032.
The team gave the scenarios names inspired by birds found in Brazil: Canary, Hummingbird, Peregrine Falcon and Sparrow.
