Into the Unknown – Nobel week dialouge 

A free full-day event

We can never know everything; all of our choices have elements of the unknown. As individuals and as a society we face many risks and uncertainties, but these can also be turned into opportunities. Indeed, embracing these uncertainties may often lead us to better decision-making.

The 2019 Nobel Week Dialogue will discuss how we deal with what we do not know and accept that there are things we cannot know.

When: December 9
Time: 10.00-16.00
Where: Svenska Mässan, Mässans gata 8 Göteborg, Bus/tram stop Korsvägen or Scandinavium
Registration: Is necessary
