How To Academy’s flagship conference brings together the inspirational individuals and organisations forging a better future for our planet. From technology to architecture, social innovation to green energy, you’ll meet the men and women making the world of tomorrow.
Curated in partnership with The New York Times, How to Change the World 2020 will offer unrivalled insight into the innovations changing our lives, communicated through short, powerful, visionary talks by the individuals at the cutting edge of their industries.
In response to the pandemic, this year’s conference will take place online, and we’re taking full advantage to curate a truly global line-up – with guests from Silicon Valley to Tel Aviv, Beijing to NYC.
With three virtual stages and more than 30+ speakers, you’ll hear from household names like former Secretary of State and founder of World War Zero, John Kerry, and Gaia theorist James Lovelock; scientists at the forefront of fighting COVID, like Oxford vaccinologist Sarah Gilbert, and from artists and activists engaged with the urgent political struggles of our time.
And you’ll meet the visionaries driving exhilarating innovations in AI, energy, transport and more – with consequences for those already born and generations beyond.
Every conference ticket includes exclusive access to a complete archive of every talk, available within 24 hours of the event ending – so you don’t need to miss a single speech, conversation or performance.
This conference takes place 12pm – 7pm BST.
Below you’ll find a small selection of the full line-up of 30+ speakers, with more names to be announced in the coming weeks.
