Event description
It’s not radical to critique our current society. It's radical to build a better one.

About this Event

This March 22-24, 2019, join us as we convene RadicalxChange’s rapidly growing community of activists, artists, entrepreneurs and scholars who are exploring and building projects around ideas in market design to reduce inequality, build widely-shared prosperity, heal global political divides and build a richer and more cooperative social life.

Birthed out of the “radical” ideas in Radical Markets, one of the Economist’s 2018 Books of the Year, RadicalxChange is at the leading edge of investigations into new, decentralized forms of socioeconomic and political coordination. RadicalxChange seeks to bridge the polarization between ideological categorizations today like “left" vs. “right”, collectivistic vs. individualistic, and to syncretize the ideals of historical social models like socialism and capitalism while envisioning new models.

The event will feature exciting speakers such as Vitalik Buterin, founder of the cryptocurrency Ethereum, Zooko Wilcox, founder of Zcash, Margaret Levi, political scientist and Director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford, Tristan Harris, Executive Director and Founder of the Center for Humane Technology, and Glen Weyl, author of Radical Markets, and recently named member of the Bloomberg Top 50 and CoinDesk’s most influential people in blockchain for 2018. We will also be doing much more than listening to speeches and panels. There will be a project fair, games night, and many activities to help you meet your next collaborator or common visionary.

We believe that technology, culture, new academic and design thinking, open debate and experimentation all have a role to play on the journey to a brighter future. In fact, with millions of dollars already invested into technology start-up, research, policy, and art projects experimenting with Radical Markets' ideas, and the exciting plans we have to showcase, spark, and form long-lasting collaborations around new initiatives at this event, we believe we are already starting to build the new institutions of tomorrow together.

What do you believe? What conversations are you waiting to have? What will you build?
