// Can a Business have a Moral Compass?
In this talk, Tom Tapper - the Co-founder & CEO of B Corp creative agency Nice and Serious - will explore the role businesses play in our society, and why putting profit above purpose has created many of the crises we now see in the world. He’ll share the story of how his agency lost its way, before codifying a moral compass into the decision-making process. He’ll discuss the importance of bringing humanity back into business, and how it can benefit us all.

PANELS

FOOD TECH
// Keeping up with Foodtech: Are Policymakers on Track?
Innovations across the food chain, from agriculture to cultured meat, are giving us an exciting glimpse of a future where feeding the world doesn’t come at the expense of the environment. However, tackling food security and sustainability must come from both the private and public sectors, as the step from creation to adoption is vast. Policymakers are needed to address obstacles such as R&D funding, training, investment in manufacturing capabilities, and regulation. How should policymakers approach this? What does the private sector need to know?

FUTURE OF EDUCATION
// Are we ready for tech-inclusive education?
Demand for education is increasing exponentially, and its role and purpose are changing rapidly. But access to high-quality education is uneven. To solve this problem, a systems-level evolution in global and national policy is needed to allow new tech-inclusive practices to be trialed and scaled up.
