UNSOMNIA returns for 2021.
We have begun the 21st century hurtling full speed towards a future that feels deeply uncertain. One of global pandemics, climate emergencies, and deeply divided politics. It’s easy to feel the odds are stacked against us. So as we confront massive disruptions in our environment, in technology and in the world in which we live, what can we do to equip ourselves to face the future and thrive in the 21st century?
Across two evenings of short talks, discover the science behind quantum computing, the secret to unlocking the brain, the dark side of renewables, and how weeds could save the world, as UNSW Sydney’s brightest minds challenge us to think about how we might not just survive, but thrive in this time of uncertainty.

Tuesday 6 July and Wednesday 7 July
6.30pm – 7.45pm
