About the Event

Are we in OUR LAST RACE? Will genetic engineering and DNA manipulation unlock possibilities for adaptation to changing circumstances so that we can 'win' tha last race, and remain here on Earth? What will be the price? Will we sacrifice humanity as we know it, as Stephen Hawking warned?

According to one of his last articles published by The Sunday Times, humans who - for whatever reason - would not underrgo the processes of improving through genetic engineering, would be unable to complete, dieing out or becoming unimportant. What part of our web of human connection will we lose? What would you hold up to protect?
