Humankind stands at a crossroads: are we condemned to climate change, war and inequality or can we learn from our errors to forge a fairer, more liveable tomorrow?

In a colossal contest of persuasion and wit, two teams of our best and brightest debate whether the future is worth waiting for, or if it’s just a question of telling our best stories while it all goes up in flames. Featuring team captains Annabel Crabb and David Marr, along with teammates Tom Ballard, Jean Hinchliffe, Bo Seo and Amy Thunig.

Supported by the City of Sydney.

This event is fitted with assistive listening systems.
