2022 theme: Human Nature

The common thread of all programs of 2022 is Humane Nature. This 'night' we will explore human nature, and the relationship between man and nature. What characterizes human nature? And how does human nature relate to animals, and to robots? And if we look at our relationship to nature: Everyone wants a sustainable world, but what does such a future actually look like? How can we work towards a sustainable society together?

And are we really up to that challenge? Does our ‘human nature’ even predispose us to play ball? These and many other questions will be discussed tonight.
