Episode Summary

EDIT
What Will Be the Biggest Societal Challenges of 2010?
AIRED:
The 2009 Battle of Ideas will finish with a question time session, where five of the festival speakers will be asked to name the two biggest challenges they think society will face over the next year, before taking questions from the audience.The Battle of Ideas is more than a "talking shop," or even a festival. It's a declaration: that ideas matter and it's time to get serious. If we are really to shape the future through debate, however, we need to think about challenges beyond the festival weekend itself. As the aim of the festival is to understand the world with a view to changing it for the better, we need to identify the key social trends affecting every aspect of life, without getting bogged down in the minutiae of everyday policy.Speakers and audience alike are asked to initiate a conversation that will carry on over the coming year about what matters and what needs to be investigated, interrogated and challenged.moreless
