The way we think about charity is wrong – Dan Pallotta

Activist, Dan Pallotta, speaks out on the double standard relationship that many people have with charities; being expected to change the world without a budget. Why do we reward organisations for how little they spend instead of how much they achieve? He says, let’s start recognising that huge accomplishments sometimes come with big expenses.

How we can make the world a better place by 2030 – Michael Green

Is it possible to end hunger and poverty, achieve gender equality and stop the impact of climate change in the next 15 years? Michael Green asks us to imagine just how we can turn this vision into a reality and make the world a better place.

An invitation to men who want a better world for women – Elizabeth Nyamayaro

Elizabeth Nyamayaro, head of UN Women’s HeForShe initiative, explains how men can do their part to make the world a better place for women. She shares why it is so important for men to stand up in the fight for global gender equality and just how much an impact we can have when we stand together.

How to make a profit while making a difference – Audrey Choi

With individuals owning almost half of all global capital, we actually have the power to make a difference by choosing to invest in organisations that support our social values. With more opportunity than ever before to truly be the change, Choi explains exactly how we can do this.

Let’s not use Mars as a backup planet – Lucianne Walkowicvz

There has been plenty of talk about using Mars as a backup planet for human life, should the Earth cease to exist one day. In this talk, Walkowicz says that we need to stop considering where to move to once the Earth has been destroyed by human activity and start looking at ways to preserve the planet that we call home.
