Congress '20, December 8-10

We've announced the 50+ sessions in the Congress '20 program. This year we'll explore important issues, from the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement to global warming; delve into the latest trends and tech, from digital to gaming; and find a little inspiration with Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. David Suzuki, David Olusoga and Jana Bennett.

For ultimate flexibility, each of these scheduled sessions will stream twice so members in different time zones can come together online to view and discuss. And after, each will be available on demand for repeat viewing. Plus, stay tuned for more announcements about speakers, live events and Q&As, and on-demand content.

Congress '20 will be held online from December 8 to 10, presented with the generous support of host sponsor ARTE, the European cultural channel.
