Informing thought and opinion leaders about human extinction
According to recent Oxford research, we might face a one in six chance of human extinction this century. At the Existential Risk Observatory, we believe the societal debate should catch up with these academic insights. That’s why we’re organising the Existential Risk Conference.
Who is it for?
The Existential Risk Conference is aimed at thought and opinion leaders, such as journalists, politicians, academics, NGO or think tank staff, and policy makers. Since we are located in the Netherlands, we are primarily aiming for leading voices of the Dutch societal debate. However, English will be spoken throughout the conference and most speakers will be international.
If you know someone who is a good fit for this event, please invite them to apply. There will be a Q&A section during the online conferrence where the audience members can submit their questions. We encourage all viewers to use it!
Conference hours and power hour
The conference will take place on Thursday the 7th of October starting at 12:30pm, and Friday the 8th of October starting at 9am CET. For busy agendas, we will include a power hour. Our power hour gives you all the information you need to keep abreast of the emerging existential risk discussion in only one hour! If you only wish to visit the power hour, please register as normal and you will have the opportunity to leave after this hour.
The conference is entirely free of charge, so invite your colleagues and friends
