Fast Forward Aotearoa - Emerging Technologies and NZ's Future

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

At the Liger Leadership Academy, we believe that one empowered individual is capable of changing the world around them, and our program ensures that our students are able to become those individuals.  But it is not the world of the past, nor even today, that our students will change - it's the world of our future.

Ben Reid is one of New Zealand's leading futurists, and Liger students Nyah Swiety-Santos & Alex Gile will be hosting Ben, along with fellow futurist and book collaborator, Sam Ragnarsson, for a discussion of insights he offers in his new book, Fast Forward Aotearoa: How emerging technology is defining the future of New Zealand… and what we can do about it.  We will discuss today's emerging technologies from AI to biotech along with the challenges we can expect to face in the future, from climate change to international geopolitics. Most importantly, we will discuss how those emerging technologies in the hands of exceptional individuals - such as Liger students - can play a key role in overcoming these global and national challenges, and empower these individuals to build a better world for us all.
