This year, we will explore the topic “More?”. 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 consumptionpopulation, 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.
