BRAVE NEW WORLD is an annual conference for people who want to know what the future holds in store and how this will affect their business, policies and life. On Monday, Tuesday 8-9 November 2021, the worlds of culture, philosophy, science, technology and storytelling will collide. We want to discuss what ethical and societal impact new technologies could have on human life, before the innovations are introduced in society.

This conference is for people who want to go beyond their own field of interest, who want to network with others with innovative mindset. Brave New World is meant for professionals coming from (applied) science, industry, (semi) government and the creative industry.

On November the 9th at Brave New World Conference we discussed the influence, threats and benefits of artificial intelligence on equality and inequality. A panel discussion organized bij the Brave New World Conference in collaboration with European Parliament. The whole discussion is now online!

MENS – Alexander Mouret

Once again we will be collaborating with Vrij Nederland and the podcast MENS by Sander Pleij. To kick off our collaboration Sander talked with Alexander Mouret the director of Brave New World about how the conference started, about some themes from previous editions and of course about the conference this year.

Free screening of SAMI BLOOD

In collaboration with European Parliament (Lux Film Prize) and Leiden International Film Festival we are happy to invite you to a free online film screening of the film Sami Blood. A Sámi girl who is exposed to the racism of the 1930’s at her boarding school, starts dreaming of another life. But to achieve it, she has to become someone else and break all ties with her family and culture. A wonderful film and a nice addition to the exploration of inequality that we will be covering this year at Brave New World. You can see the film at https://watch.liff.nl/ until the 13th of November by using the voucher code SAMIBLOODBNW2020. (The screening is capped at 300 viewers.)
