The 2018 Forum asks: how do we make our Impossible Dreams come true?

Should you be there to learn and influence it?

It follows from the highly successful 2017 Forum, when we gave a platform to diverse voices – speakers and participants – to share the challenges and some inspirational ideas on the future of Wellington.

For 2018 we have invited a new set of speakers – twelve disruptors and dreamers - to choose their own topic, to detonate powerful ideas and stimulate discussion.

Participants in the Forum will be 250 of the most engaged and interesting people in Wellington.
