Humans, Values, Technology.
Brave Conversations, Smart Humans.


A two day event which brings Smart Humans from every walk of life together to design a better world.

The best way to learn is through experience and the act of playing with ideas.

Over 2 days, teams of diverse participants will critically examine our current societies through the lens of systems, communications, governance and technology. Then they will work through a process of creating a better society for the future. Part of this will be ask what “better” actually looks like for all stakeholders, and each team will have to determine their own measures of success. They will then present their worlds to the broader group.

We are creating a space where everyone can be brave, can say the things that they know need to be said, and be prepared to apply intellectual rigour to challenging ideas that might take us to uncomfortable places.
