An extraordinary one-day event which will take a totally different look at the challenges we face as a country and the new possibilities that – uniquely - this generation has to overcome them.
We face an unprecedented set of challenges: a decimated economy, ever increasing demands on our public services and trust in our political system at an all time low.
But instead of more pessimism, how can we begin to punch through the gloom and take advantage of the radically networked digital world we now live in to help revive our economy, rebuild our democratic structures and improve public services?
When compared to other events of this type, and by the very high quality of the content and engagement Reboot Britain has on offer, the full ticket price for Reboot Britain is £295.
However given the current economic climate and to ensure that people from all backgrounds and from all organisations are able to attend there is a pay-what-you-can option. Recommended donation is at least £30.
A very limited number of free tickets will be available are also available so as not to exclude any participants who cannot afford at least the recommended £30 fee from attending.
A TASTER OF SESSIONS
We'll be publishing the first version of the schedule soon, but in the meantime, here's a small portion of the content we've got lined up...
* Demos present their Progressive Conservatism thinking which will look at the major challenges we face for public services. They will put forward the question: how are we going to manage doing more for less?
* Learning Without Frontiers slate a number of sessions, from how technology is changing cognitive development, to redesigning our schools for the new age.
* WeBank host a peer-to-peer session on new models for lending and borrowing, using Zopa as a case study showing how quickly you can lend or borrow without the middleman.
* Plus talks from Martha Lane-Fox, Gillian Tett, Howard Rheingold, Sir Michael Bichard, Professor Lizbeth Goodman, Daniel Heaf and more.
