Emerge 2013: The Future of Truth

Conferences

emerge: artists + scientists + engineers + humanists + more redesign the future

What is the future of truth? We will explore the futures of truth through a series of performances, conversations and beautiful lies. Join artists, engineers, designers, futurists, scientists, humanists and makers in a festival of cognitive dissonance that explores our own complex entanglements with truth, reason, and meaning.

Featured speakers from the Global Institute of Sustainability include:

Sander van der Leeuw: Dean, School of Sustainability and UN Champion of the Earth
Dan Sarewitz: Sustainability Scientist, Global Institute of Sustainability and Co-Director, Consortium for Science, Policy, and Outcomes
Ann Kinzig: Chief Research Strategist, Global Institute of Sustainability and Professor, School of Life Sciences
