Yuval Noah Harari – Brave Young Minds

Brave New World presents: Brave Young Minds in conversation with Yuval Noah Harari

During the first edition of Brave Young Minds, on September 18 in Naturalis Biodiversity Center, writer, historian and philosopher Yuval Noah Harari will talk with hundred children about the history of mankind. Brave Young Minds is organised by Brave New World Conference, especially for our youngest generation. Children from 10 years of age will be invited to ask their questions about our world and mankind to a very special guest. We are extremely honoured that Prof. Harari will be our first guest in Naturalis in Leiden as one of the highlights of Leiden European City of Science 2022.

First Speakers 2022

On September 12th & 13th 2022 our already seventh edition of Brave New World Conference will take place in Leiden. We are working hard to find you the most inspiring speakers to join our program. So what do we have in store for you?

This year we will have one theme spread over two days: The Future of Intelligence.
On both days we will dive into different forms of intelligence and the role of new technologies.

Brave New World Speaking Agency

In the six years of organizing Brave New World Conference we often are asked for advice by third parties to help them with finding the right speakers for their event. To help them and to help spread the ideas and themes we curated for Brave New World we decided to add a new branch to our activities – a speaking agency.  Brave New World Speaking Agency will help to spread the key message of Brave New World – what will our world look like in the future considering all the technological innovations and what are the forecasts of this new world from the fields of art and science.

Fakes, Forgeries and Deceptions

Last edition of Brave New World on the first day we talked about “Truth in Reality”, what is real and what is not. In the course of putting together our program we had an idea – lets contact the many museums and collections in Leiden and ask them if they have some fakes, forgeries or deceptions in their depots The reactions were unexpectedly enthusiastic and positive. Before we knew it we were organizing an exhibition.
