THEME: Expect the Unexpected
As Humans, we are the dominant force in shaping the planet. But as a result of rapid social, scientific and technological advancements, which has brought humanity both security and anxiety, we need to face a new reality.

How do we prepare for the unexpected?
What are our priorities in shaping the future?
How do we ensure that we take an inclusive approach to the unknown – and not a divisive?

Join us, when we explore ideas to guide us through a precarious era in human history – an era shaped by rapid and intersecting technological advancements that impact our everyday lives on an unprecedented scale.
