The theme BRIDGES looks at some of the most pressing challenges of our time. It's as much of a celebration for designers, artists and creatives as it is for scientists, researchers and politicians. The is new theme assesses our new reality and a range of perspectives, inviting attendees to join the conversation and go deeper. This year you can expect less focus on one-way storytelling and greater emphasis on interaction and engagement.
