Nobel Week Dialogue

Into the unknown: Uncertainty, risk and opportunity

9 December 2019, Gothenburg

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.

Join Nobel Laureates and other experts for a day of discussions on risk, uncertainty and opportunity.

Watch the live stream

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. Our speakers and guests will tackle fundamental questions about how uncertainty and risk affect our society, our culture and our daily lives: How do we evaluate risk? How do we live with uncertainty? What are the biggest risks facing society?
