Four scenarios regarding Chemistry teacher training and practice in Romania in 2030 were developed by using the 2x2 matrix design for scenario writing. The two driving forces taken in account for the design of scenarios were migration and consumerism. In two of the proposed scenarios teachers are trained to teach socioscientific courses at class. One aim of this study was to collect Chemistry students' views on the developed scenarios for Chemistry teacher training and practice in Romania in 2030. From the N = 111 students tested, 51.35% of students selected the most auspicious scenario as the scenario for teacher training and practice in 2030, a scenario which did not include teaching socioscientific courses at class. This result was confirmed to be statistically significant by the Kruskal-Wallis test (p < 0.01) and the Mann-Whitney U test (p < 0.01). This made us wonder if the students are aware of the consequences in time of migration and consumerism and if a more comprehensive study was necessary, to identify the predictors for their selection of scenarios.
