The purpose of this article is to present a conceptual model of the future competences needed for human beings to be successful. Starting from the theory of constructivism, we argue that in an increasingly faster and unpredictable, more automated and digital world, human beings who improve an intrinsically human set of competences will have a better chance of future success. More than skills, these competences must be developed from an individual responsibility, always integrated in a social context. Possible outcomes include the focus of lifelong learning, as well as the importance of holistic learning.
