Night of Ideas, presented at Harvard University’s William James Hall, will gather researchers, authors, artists, and leading figures of our society to participate in conferences and conversations about our future. Our participants will come from all over the world to discuss questions of integration, mobility, and purpose. Join us to attend exciting conferences, workshops and artistic performances!
This year, we will explore the topic More Consciousness ?. This theme focuses on the questions arising from our ever-changing world, which is caught up in the dynamics of progress but also in our increasing consumption, population, and emissions. We will closely examine the present with the intent to build a world with a sustainable and fair economy. At this Night of Ideas at Harvard, we will call for greater awareness on the various issues of our ever-changing world.
All of our screening will be displayed from 7pm until the end of the Night in the rooms B4 and B6.
