About the talk
Science fiction authors warn us of problems such as those in the Hunger Games, but do we learn from them? Without entertainment we would not read, but if entertainment means that heroes and heroines always win, are we just learning to be over-confident? Come to this talk to prepare for the future, because that's where you will spend the rest of your life.

Admission is free of charge but prior registration is required. Please access this online form to register. Seats are available on a first-come-first-served basis.
