Don't shape the future of technology.

Use technology to shape the future.

The maxim of technology has long been ‘to make the world a better place’ – and yet, the future seems more unstable than ever. 

We are at a crossroads in humanity where some of the biggest social, political and philosophical decisions of a lifetime must be made; before we stroll into an era of history where we no longer control our own fate.

These decisions will be confronted at The Assembly – an invite-only gathering taking place during TNW Conference 2017, and composed of the greatest architects of technology, global captains of industry, and the international community’s leading policy-makers.
