Night of Ideas 2022 – Rebuilding Together

  • Thu 27 Jan 2022
  • 6:00PM

Join the NIGHT OF IDEAS taking place on 27 January at the Institut français in London.

How can we rebuild tomorrow’s world together? On the backdrop of global socio-economic and environmental crises, a collective desire for new initiatives and action is arising. In these changing and challenging times, when many of us feel the need to share ideas and exchange views, the Night of Ideas provides a platform to reflect upon current issues and rethink tomorrow’s world.

Crossing French, British, and European perspectives, the Night of Ideas engages audiences through free debates with 40 leading figures, including anthropologist Philippe Descola, economist Mariana Mazzucato, novelist Elif Shafak, and artist Zineb Sedira. Austrian Climate Change Expert Renate Christ will take part in the panel The Politics of Expertise.

All events in the Night of Ideas are free to attend and open to all. Prior registration is required.

The debates taking place in the Ciné Lumière will also be live streamed on 2 channels:
