The narrative of the future is not beyond our control. We are characters in its plot, a plot in which we are putting ourselves in jeopardy. In the closing chapter of the storytelling track, we’ll listen to a master of artistic narrative tell us how we can take the story of our life on this planet back into our own capable hands. How the plot must be guided by a better sense of altruism and responsibility. And how the climax can be one that ensures rights and justice for all — and, most importantly, for the planet itself.
