On 12 November next, the Nexus Institute is hosting the conference ‘What Will Save the World?’ at the National Opera and Ballet in Amsterdam.

International scientists, politicians, activists and philosophers will debate both the origins and solutions to today’s global crises.
Speakers include cognitive psychologist Steven Pinker, historian Simon Schama, philosopher Ágnes Heller and many others. Tickets are €30 for those under 31, lunch is included.
