The Event

In a world with such rapid innovation and change, how do we hold onto the essential human qualities that could make the future a place fit for all of us? The Sustainable Development Goals offer a vision of that future, but are these problems for governments or technologists -- or for all of us? Economists say we’ve started the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” where we are changing ourselves with nearly magical technology: What is required for us to we use this capacity for the greatest good?

Join this “EQ Café” on the science and emotion of innovation to imagine a better future – starting within each of us. We’ll explore the topic of innovation and, as U.N. Action Partners, working toward the Sustainable Development Goals… and the essential question of how to use our emotions to make innovation serve humanity. 

EQ Cafés are insightful, fun sessions for people curious about emotional intelligence to connect and learn together. 

In this Café we will discover:

  • How we’re feeling about innovation, and the role of emotion in catalyzing change
  • How the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals are an invitation for a new kind of innovation
  • How emotions, and emotional intelligence, could help us step forward
