This activity is teacher directed to ensure students fully understand the process. If students undertake these independently, it is recommended to complete at least two future briefs under the guidance of a teacher first.

In the future briefs students are presented with a set of four blog posts. They use these to identify potential issues related to financial identity and sustainability and come up with solutions to at least one problem.
