Art and Design
Art and Design have always played a role in the dissemination and expression of complex ideas to large audiences. But in an age when we face challenges unprecedented in their complexity and threat to humanity, this role has probably never been more important.
Society and Culture
Climate chaos, democratic breakdown, a succession of once-in-a-generation shocks – for young people, the future has never looked more uncertain or more unjust than it does today. Yet in the face of these challenges, inequality is excluding far too many original thinkers from the pool of talent it will take to build us all a better tomorrow.
Business and Innovation
Climate change, corporate responsibility, gender equality, the role of information in society – for too long we have been divided and ineffective on the big issues. Yet now, a new breed of business leaders are driving positive change, responding to consumer wants and business imperatives in innovative ways. What will the future look like?
Science and Technology
The world is changing at a rapid pace, with huge implications for anyone interested in the intersection between technology and humanity. If we want a fairer world as well as a more advanced one, we will need innovative minds drawn from the broadest possible spectrum of society driving change.
