Expert speaker and ITV Economics’ Editor, Noreena Hertz, hosted the launch of UCL’s funding campaign. The target is one of the most ambitious ever seen in the UK’s higher education sector, with only Oxford and Cambridge raising larger levels of philanthropic funding through their campaigns. Noreena was delighted to take part in the event, as a graduate and honorary professor at UCL.
This lively, interactive event ‘How Will Society Survive Into The 22nd Century’ featured UCL’s most distinguished thinkers and opinion-formers debating the biggest challenges to come for our society in the next 100 years, including global health, human rights, equality and climate change.
In her opening keynote presentation, Noreena praised UCL as a home for radical thinkers and its continued success as a leader of the academic world in vital research and teaching areas.
The event, hosted by Noreena and UCL alumna, featured leading academics discussing the key issues live on stage.

Noreena explained that our brains are not the rational objective things we might want them to be, because our analysis is affected by our own experiences and thinking patterns. So what does it take to make smart decisions? Noreena gives three pointers:
We shouldn’t rely upon experts entirely, because they get things wrong.
Those of us who have had success already in life must not be blinded by what has worked for us in the past.
We need to get better at understanding what effects our decision making.
