The Theme of this year's event is: On the edge!

Our Universe is ``On the Edge``.

On the one hand, phenomenal and beautiful things are happening in this lifetime. It is an exciting time to be alive. Overall, health and wealth have never been greater. It as the age of opportunity and transformation, where billions of people work tirelessly and eagerly in their own way to establish their piece of the universe. On the other hand, our earth and society are steadily been pushed closer and closer to the edge. With wars, discrimination, inequality, and hatred rapidly seemingly spreading across the globe in unprecedented speed and violence.

From the stories of scientific progress and social change to the transmission of culture between generations. These are the projects, people, and tales that need to be conveyed and shared. We are a living and moving entity that tells the narrative of where we’ve been, where we are, and where we are going. There is no limit to our civilization – unless we step off the edge!

So how far would you go to right the wrongs? And transform the bad into good?

What have you learned? What can you share? What difference will you make?
