Nesta Predictions 2020
January 16, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
What is the event?
This January, Nesta invites you to discover what lies ahead in 2020. Join us for an interactive evening where you’ll hear Nesta’s predictions on the trends, social movements and technological breakthroughs that will shape the world in the coming year.
Nesta will be forecasting across a range of sectors, from the future of education to the next big thing in surveillance. Could this be the year we all get to know our digital twins? Or will it become the norm to have a climate crisis counsellor? Will fireworks have their last bang, and what could replace them? And could the cyber insurance market be about to boom?
The evening will include Nesta experts pitching their predictions for 2020 and will be hosted by our Co-Director of Explorations, Bea Karol-Burks.
Who is it for and why should I come?
For professionals who are tasked with shaping a better future, this event presents you with an opportunity to experience how your sector might evolve and to explore new or surprising ways to solve problems. Join Nesta to keep on top of emerging ideas, stay ahead of the curve or find out more about Nesta’s work.
Predictions 2020 will not only lift the lid on Nesta, revealing what our researchers are up to, but you’ll be able to open up discussions with the Nesta predictors over drinks. You’ll also have the chance to interact more imaginatively with a series of creative installations that explore future scenarios for each prediction.
Registration will open at 6:00PM with the event starting promptly at 6:30PM. The event will finish at 8:00PM and will be followed by networking drinks until 8:30PM.
