Award-winning author of the best-seller, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari sits down with Professor Shahidha Bari to discuss the themes of his new book, Unstoppable Us Volume 1, aimed at a younger audience.
Harari's latest book is aimed at children so it’s on the smaller side, but it's still full of big ideas. In this conversation, he discusses what the future of humankind could look like and how the all-powerful influence of technology will be decisive in shaping it. He also explores why the Covid-19 pandemic has not led to a major cultural or political reset and discusses how Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has interrupted the established international order. Running through it all is the idea that humans can still take charge of their own destinies.
