Ninety-nine problems. Three speakers. One question.

This panel features some of the most innovative and engaged thinkers in their fields, applying their considerable knowledge and imaginations to one of the most profound questions of all time: how do we save the world? Of course, there’s not going to be a single answer to this mother of all problems, but we need to draw our ideas and inspirations from a variety of disciplines, and seek solutions together.

Designer Liz Jackson, environmentalist Jonathan Drori and economist Raj Patel will put their heads together in a fun and productive interdisciplinary discussion about our collective future.
