Description: Presented by TED in collaboration with Skoll Foundation and UN Foundation, “We the Future” takes place during the week of the UN General Assembly and Global Goals Week. Attendance at this event is by invitation-only.

We live in contentious times. Yet behind the dismaying headlines and social-media-fueled quarrels, people around the world — millions of them, in fact — are unrelentingly working on small and big problems, dreaming up new ways to expand the possible, building a better world.

“We the Future” will share some of these stories. Visionary talks and bold analysis will mix with impact-oriented projects, cautionary tales, and strategies for building bridges and dialogue.

The program will explore some of our world’s most difficult collective challenges — and the most exciting solutions emerging from every corner of the globe, that are making strides towards achieving the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted at the UN in 2015. We’ll mix in amazing live music and significant opportunities to meet and network.

This is an invitation-only event.
