Join Us for This Year’s RE:WIRED Celebration

The world faces some of the greatest challenges ever. The past decade has seen a dramatic technological acceleration. However, the last 18 month have witnessed a seismic shift in the way we live, work and connect. These challenges can be solved by both heroic innovation and communal action. We need to rewire our public discourse and how we think. We are pleased to welcome you to RE:WIRED.
