Nobel Prize Summit: Our Planet, Our Future

The Power of Stories: Writing the Future of Our Planet

Join us for this prelude to the Nobel Prize Summit as we discuss the way stories have the power to impact our vision of the future.

Together, we are writing the future of our planet. In the same way that we are living with the deeds and decisions of the past, the choices made and actions taken by those of us alive today will bear direct impact on the generations who come after we are gone. But how we imagine our future and tell those stories can serve as a predictor of what is to come. As prelude to the first-ever Nobel Prize Summit at the end of April, Nobel Prize Laureate Martin Chalfie, screenwriter Joe Robert Cole, and novelist Kim Stanley Robinson will examine the way in which those stories have the power to impact our vision of the future.

Moderated by Shahzeen Attari, who researches the factors that motivate action on climate change, this wide-ranging and eclectic conversation promises to be hopeful, optimistic, and above all, inspiring.

This event will be co-hosted by The Exchange and the National Academies' Roundtable on Science and Technology for Sustainability. For more Information about the Nobel Prize Summit, visit the Nobel Prize Summit website: https://www.nobelprize.org/events/nobel-prize-summit/2021
