How can we use intersectionality as a lens to help see and understand the world? Nonhlanhla Makuyana, co-founder of Decolonising Economies, and Richard Teverson, a British actor who appeared on the screen including The Crown and Downton Abbey, meet for the first time to share what their life stories and current roles teach them about empathy and awareness of social justice.
About next role models
Who can we learn from to reinvent business and our economies? Female founders! For their book, Starting A Revolution, Naomi Ryland, managing partner at tbd*, and Lisa Jaspers, CEO of Folkdays, have interviewed some of the most progressive leaders — including Dame Stephanie Shirley and Joana Breidenbach — to share their stories of leadership and changemaking.
About the ultimate augmentation
Humans, nature, and technology: Will the next era enable the ultimate augmentation of all living things? In their first-ever conversation, Yasaman Sheri, principal designer at IKEA design lab SPACE10, and Moon Ribas, co-founder of the Cyborg Foundation, exchange their views on sensing, the next possible evolutionary stage of humankind, and the beauty of not knowing.
About new currencies
As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, introducing immunity passports as a governmental initiative have been discussed and explored. In a first-time conversation between Harvard Medical School bioethicist Natalie Kofler and Albert Wenger, managing partner at Union Square Ventures, we’ll dive into the idea of “immunocapital” and its implications for the further fragmentation of society.
About new narratives in democracies
Amid the rise of nationalism, social divide, populism, and political polarization, Anab Jain, co-founder and director of the design studio Superflux, and Alex Evans, founder of the Collective Psychology Project, discuss the role of storytelling and platform power in shaping perceived realities, opinions, and the sentiment of “us and them.”
About belonging and reinvention
Where do we find a sense of belonging? And once we do, how do we harness it to reinvent who we are and who we will become? In their first-ever conversation, Charlotte Fox Weber, head of psychotherapy at The School of Life, and formerly incarcerated writer and author Erwin James meet to share their wisdom about inner peace, mental resilience, and growth in adversity.
