Our Planet, Our Future


Inspired by Alfred Nobel’s belief in celebrating achievements that contribute “the greatest benefit to humankind,” the Nobel Foundation, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research/Stockholm Resilience Centre invite you to engage in an optimistic exploration of the best version of our collective future. The first Nobel Prize Summit will convene talks from Nobel laureates and conversations among experts from the science, policy, arts, and youth activist communities. It will bring together the world’s brightest and most creative thinkers to focus on three key areas critical to the future of humanity:

  • Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss
  • Reducing Inequality
  • Technologies with the Power to Transform the Way We Live and Work

Informed by lessons learned during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that solving these challenges must be guided by an inclusive vision for our shared future – one that is grounded in science and that safeguards our global commons.

This free, online summit is a global platform for the exchange of ideas and the source of change-making approaches that will engage and entertain, motivate and embolden. Special performances by world-class artists combined with opportunities for dialogue and networking sessions round out the summit experience.

The virtual auditorium is large but space is limited. Please RSVP for this unique mix of science, discussion, music, theatre, and action. Reserve your virtual seat here.
