For Science Week 2023 it’s time to consider what it means to be human in today’s world.
Human creativity, curiosity and concepts have transformed how we live, how we interact with each other, and our relationship with our planet. Incredible developments have shaped our understanding of ourselves and our world. At times it can feel like changes are out of our control, from environmental emergency to being outpaced by technology. What lies ahead, and what role will science play in this? How will the actions we take now shape our collective human experience for the long term? In an uncertain world, one certainty is that from agriculture to AI, how we live today will not be how we live in the future.
