“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” — Albert Einstein

Much of the world’s media focus on the huge challenges we face today, from issues of inequality, to the political tensions caused by the shifts in global power, to the threats of technology, to mental health issues in many parts of the world. However, overcoming these challenges presents many opportunities, such as the potential to bring millions of individuals out of poverty, utilise new technologies to benefit all our lives, and improve our societal wellbeing.

Discussing these challenges and their possible solutions is critical to fulfilling the potential of current changes, and our conference seeks to play a part in that discussion. Join us as we delve into the challenges we face and explore how we can all contribute to overcoming them.

Learn from speakers at the forefront of Academia and Business and enjoy the chance to share your own ideas during our interactive panel discussions. After the panels, enjoy a debate in the Cambridge Union debate chamber, which has previously hosted the likes of Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, and more recently, Bernie Sanders, on the motion “The challenges discussed today can, and will, be overcome within our lifetimes”.

Together we can change our thinking, and change the future.
