    TALK - Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    By 2050, the population will hit 9.8 billion and our energy demands will be twice as high. As history shows, in the face of uncertain futures, a wave of innovation will change the way we live. From the potential of biogenetics to a sustainable relationship with our natural resources, this program brings together futurists and policy makers offering an in-depth look at our future on this planet.
