Description

Saturday 5 May

10:am-11.am New Power
Presenters - Jeremy Heimans, Henry Timms Facilitator - Susan Dodds
For millennia, power was something to be seized and jealously guarded. However, the rapid emergence of new technologies is changing the game. From Bernie Saunders to President Donald Trump, from taxis to B&Bs, new ideas, political movements and businesses now spread with astonishing speed. In conversation with Professor Susan Dodds, New Power authors Jeremy Heimans (co-founder of GetUp!) and Henry Timms draw on examples from politics, popular culture, business and social justice to explain the disruptive forces that are changing the course of our age.

11am-12noon Peter Greste: The First Casualty

Presenter - Peter Greste Facilitator - Hugh Riminton
Foreign correspondent Peter Greste spent two decades reporting from the frontline in the world’s most dangerous countries before making headlines himself following his incarceration in an Egyptian prison. The First Casualty is his enlightening firsthand account of how the war on journalism spread from the battlefields of the Middle East to the governments of the West.
